A research report on the motivations for young people volunteering in urban slums of Freetown, Sierra Leone:

This report summarises the findings from research in the slum communities of Kroo Bay and Dworzack in Freetown, Sierra Leone in 2012. The report attempts to understand and analyse the motives for young people living in slum communities volunteering in community-based DRR activities. The recommendations will help to ensure young volunteers are fully engaged in increasing the resilience of their communities to disasters.
