Who’s Your Daddy: Changing the Paternal Way We Think, Act, and Engage with Developing Countries and Poverty
2:00 - 3:00 p.m.
Busch Student Center, 253A
This presentation is an examination of how we, as individuals from developed countries, engage in international service and development. Using their work in Nicaragua with Educacion Plus de Nicaragua, and in Haiti with Missionaries of Charity as case studies, Leila Houshmand and Jessica Girdler will examine common questions around international service work and the burdens faced by developing countries. The questions of the language and lens we use, as well as our effectiveness, will be addressed to hopefully change the mindset we use to approach international development work and service.
