This is the second video of the series ‘RYVU Snapshots’ which aims to disseminate findings and reflections emerging from the Refugee Youth Volunteering Uganda research. Each snapshot will feature project team members and also partners sharing insights related to RYVU’s work in around 2 minutes to open up conversations in volunteering and development spaces, particularly among youth.
In this snapshot, Ms Scovia Adrupio, Coordinator for the UNESCO Chair on Lifelong Learning, Youth and Work at Gulu University, Uganda, shares her thoughts on the question: “Is the volunteer as ‘giver’ and community as ‘receiver’ the right model to understand and support youth volunteering in Uganda? If not, how else should we be thinking about it?”.
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. This series draws upon these debates in an accessible visual format. The videos are downloadable and can be widely shared.
