Dear Mr. O’Shea,
The Joint Committee on Foreign Affairs is currently considering the development needs of Uganda. As part of this review the Committee is consulting with relevant stakeholders and are seeking submissions from NGO’s working in Uganda.
As an NGO working in Uganda, the Committee would greatly appreciate GOALs views and information on the following:
○Outline of GOALs current work programme relating to Uganda
○Outline of GOALs planning timeframe for undertaking development work in Uganda
○GOALs strategic priorities for undertaking development work in Uganda
○Outline of GOALs organisational model for undertaking development work in Uganda
○Views on issues which are currently limiting GOALs development potential in Uganda
○Views on potential opportunities for accelerating sustainable development in Uganda
○Views on Irelands development priorities for Uganda
○Any other views which may be of interest to the Committee in relation to the development needs of Uganda
Please note that any submissions will be publicly available and will be drawn upon in the preparation of the Committee’s report and recommendations. It is also the Committee’s intention to hold a public meeting during June to discuss development in Uganda and Irelands contribution to it and to invite NGOs such as GOAL to address the Committee at that time.
The Committee have requested that that any submissions should be submitted by the end of May.
Clerk to the Committee
