Volunteer Research Survey Paves way for Successful Project

Volunteer Research Survey Paves way for Successful Project

The importance of doing a comprehensive needs assessment survey has enabled VC partner project, the St Francis Family Helper Project to undertake a ground breaking and innovative programme of intervention in Northern Uganda.

Undertaken by VC Volunteer, and specialist researcher Brian Lynch, the Needs Assessment report on corporal punishment in primary schools in Northern Uganda was a decisive piece of work which provided the project with the necessary background to obtain funding from leading Irish funder, Misean Cara.

The project which is being showcased as part of an EU Aid Volunteering Initiative project in an online exhibition by VC Uganda is already gaining much interest not only in other schools interested in introducing positive discipline but also from people interested in doing similar volunteering with VC in the region.

VC has extensive experience in the recruitment training and support of volunteer workers and its involvement with the EU Volunteering for Humanity project has allowed the organisation to highlight the work in the region and encourage more volunteers and engagement through its extensive network of partners.
