UCD Volunteers Overseas

Skills Exchange

 UCDVO Volunteer and Returned Missionary participating in the Skills Exchange, UCD, March, 2017

UCDVO in partnership with the Association of Missionaries and Religious of Ireland (AMRI)  facilitate a number of IT Skills Exchange workshops for returned missionaries. Our course took place in UCD in March 2016 and March 2017.  On this course, approximately 18 UCDVO Volunteers who were preparing to travel to Tanzania to work on a computer education project, tutored 18 returned missionaries on IT Skills. The opportunity for mutual learning and exchange of skills and stories of living and working overseas was a really valuable and interesting one. Read the article by Ruth Powell of Comhlámh to find out more about our previous course.

Feedback from Tutors:

“I really enjoyed my time teaching and learned a lot about the person’s life. I have a greater appreciation for the gap in technology knowledge and take satisfaction that I was able to help bridge that gap.”

“I have improved my communication skills and also my own computer skills as we learned many things together!”
