Culture and Child Exploitation
Feb 3, 12:15 PM-1:15 PM, University of Minnesota Law School, Mondale Hall Room 65
Humphrey Fellow Aneeta Aahooja is currently a Child Protection Officer at the Child Protection Unit of UNICEF-Balochistan in Pakistan. She is responsible for the implementation of children’s and women’s protection initiatives in the province through advocacy, monitoring, and advising on legislation and policy. During the past 5 years, she has worked closely with hundreds of children who were abused sexually or forced to perform intensive labor, and has made miracles happen in these children’s lives. On February 3, Ms. Aahooja will be sharing with us some stories that are close to her heart. She will lead us to think about what we, as individuals and part of a society, can do to end child exploitation in the world.
