As many of you know I am an undergraduate disaster management student.

I am currently trying to raise funds in order to go over to Uganda and take part in 'Research Uganda'...

Research Uganda gives participants the chance to conduct ground breaking research to direct Volunteer Uganda's strategy in poverty alleviation and development. The internship offers participants a unique opportunity to take part in first hand research on the ground which has a tangible impact on thousands of people's lives.

How it works...

The Volunteer Uganda research programme combines academic and applied empirical research methods to investigate local levels of multidimensional poverty. We are pioneering an initiative to establish the foundations for mapping the holistic assessment of needs across the Kanungu District through collecting geo-located quantitative and qualitative household and community level data. The focus lies upon working with local expertise and community members to identify and digitally map key areas of deprivation and to track changes in standards of living over time.

Research interns actively participate in project design and implementation, as well as primary data collection, synthesis, analysis and reporting. Playing an integral role in shaping Volunteer Uganda's long-term poverty alleviation strategy, research findings help to guide policy and facilitate community development through creating the groundwork for establishing key partnerships, planning for effective, evidence-informed interventions and increasing its collaborative work with local communities.

Kanungu is a relatively undiscovered and understudied region that holds vast potential for multidisciplinary exploration of rural, development-related subjects. Researchers have a rare opportunity to investigate real and pressing issues that impact the lives of thousands of people, generating new, first-hand knowledge and potentially effecting change on a significant scale.

As you can see, I will take a lot from this as well as really helping make a difference in Uganda, Thank you to everyone...
