Please if you have got time, i would appreciate it if you visit the link below and answer some questions regarding this important survey.The research that is being carried out aims to better understand the socioeconomic impact of the activities (social, political, financial, cultural, intellectual) of Ugandans living in the UK, on the development of Uganda. This research has been commissioned by Comic Relief, a UK based Charity, which strives to create a just world that is free of poverty.
Comic Relief is working in partnership with the UK Department for International Development (DfID) on a co-funded African diaspora engagement programme called the ‘Common Ground Initiative’. This initiative is a unique opportunity for Comic Relief to, not only support the international development work of African’s living in the diaspora, but also to better understand how the diaspora can be better supported to undertake work that has socio-economic impact in their countries of origin.
It is envisaged that the findings from this study will inform policy debates both in the UK and Uganda to support diaspora engagement and investment.
To enable us to build a picture of the activities of the Ugandan diaspora, the researchers have launched an online survey accessible via the link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/GDZPNJX.
I would be grateful if you could kindly pass on the link to the survey to other Ugandan friends and colleagues living in the UK, so that we can get the widest possible reach. It would be great to have all members of the Ugandans at Heart Forum, participating. For it has been shown that ‘together, we can’.
The study as well seeks to understand the perception of Uganda, among the second and later generation diaspora. All the views and experiences are crucial to enable us to build up an accurate picture of the current level of engagement and the challenges that one faces in undertaking any work in Uganda.
Again, please this is the link to access the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/GDZPNJX.
Thank you very much
