This document stems from a pilot research project on community service. The research had two aims: (1) gather public opinion about the introduction of a community service law in Uganda; and (2) evaluate different activities carried out since 1997 related to the actual introduction of community service. Data on public opinion were collected through a questionnaire (the questions and analysis of the collected data are in the report) and administered to a representative sample of the population in Uganda. The questions sought information on how people heard about the community service initiative and what they thought of it.
