Seeking Justice: How long would you wait? Guest post from IJM CanadaThe UN’s World Day of Social Justice: The United Nations’ (UN) World Day of Social Justice is annually observed on February 20 to encourage people to look at how social justice affects poverty eradication. It also focuses on the goal of achieving full employment and support for social integration.
Together for Freedom: How partnering makes us strongerWhat do you think of when you hear the word “slavery”? Most likely, an image involving a plantation in the southern United States or a Caribbean island comes to mind. Although this is not inaccurate, and is certainly part of the history of slavery, it’s far from the current reality. The British Empire abolished the slave trade in 1807, but slavery still exists. It looks a little different and it’s hidden from public view, but slavery, especially in the form of sexual exploitation, is just as present today. In fact, today’s technology makes sexual exploitation even easier — almost like buying used furniture.
From Surviving to Thriving: How partnership makes creates economic opportunitiesSuku Mijar was born into the dalit caste in Nepal. In the eyes of society, that makes her an outcast. In Suku’s very remote dalit village, poverty’s oppression puts young and old at risk of exploitation and deeper suffering. Suku and her husband were unable to earn or grow enough to feed their family regularly. Anything other than daily survival was out of reach.
Collaboration is at the center
