Dr. Robert Hawkins is taking a group of New York University MSW students to Del Carmen, Philippines to engage in a community needs assessment using community-based participatory action research in a cross-cultural, high-need, multi-national environment. Students will work with local community leaders to learn the methods of qualitative community participatory research as used to assess the health and social needs of a community. PhotoVoice will be one of the qualitative methods used to collect date from the Del Carmen youth. PhotoVoice will allow the youth to participate by recording how they see the needs, resources, and challenges of the city they live in. Cameras are needed for this data collection method. ALL funds will go to the purchase of cameras that will be left with the community schools.
**If you have a digital camera in good working condition that you would like to donate, then please contact Tiffany Fogelson, Research Assistant at TLFogelson@nyu.edu**
