Violence and Childrens Rights in Peru

During the spring of 2014, a group of my classmates and I will be going on a trip to Peru through Nyack College. This is an intensive Global Service Learning Course that will introduces us students to the fascinating world of human rights with an emphasis on children rights in the context of violence and severe socioeconomic injustice. The purpose of this course is to guide you in the learning and analysis of broad cultural, political, economic, social and religious forces that have shaped Peru and that impact the wellbeing of children in poorer communities. Issues of special attention will be the types of violence affecting children, efforts in the access to justice on behalf of the children, violence prevention, nutrition and education. The course will be offered in partnership with the Peruvian Christian human rights organization Paz Y Esperanza. Paz Y Esperanza, works as a Christian human rights organization which are dedicated to defending and promoting justice on behalf of persons and communities living in poverty or affected by different forms of injustice.
