On this World Youth Skills Day 2021, we are happy to launch ‘RYVU Snapshots’, a series of short videos to disseminate findings and reflections emerging from the Refugee Youth Volunteering Uganda research. Each snapshot will bring key ideas drawing upon RYVU’s work to open up conversations in volunteering and development spaces, particularly among youth.
The RYVU project is focused on exploring the kinds of voluntary labour practiced by young refugees in Uganda and investigating how these impact on their skills, employability and the inequalities they experience. The 2-minute videos, which are downloadable and can be widely shared, will feature project team members and also partners sharing insights related to RYVU’s work in accessible ways.
In this first snapshot, Dr Moses Okech, post-doctoral researcher and member of the RYVU team, shares initial highlights from the large-scale quantitative survey that has been conducted in Uganda earlier this year as part of the RYVU project (related blog also available here).
Please do get in touch if you have any suggestions or topics of interest that you would like to see as part of this video series!
