FSCS faculty member and Program Coordinator of the Bachelor of Child and Youth Care program, Dr. Jaspreet Bal, continues her work as a part of the Denmark Uganda Vietnam Exchange (DUVE) with University College Absalon and partners in Uganda and Vietnam. The program was supposed to wrap up in spring in 2020 with an in-person seminar. While this seminar is delayed, the team continues the build their online resources, with the reveal of the new DUVE website this month.
In addition to the launch of the new website, two students from the Faculty of Media and Creative Arts had the opportunity to travel to Uganda to film a short documentary about the impact of violence on children within Uganda. This film was made as part of their post-grad journalism program at Humber. The documentary features interviews with partners in Uganda and well as with involved individuals at UC Absalon. The film was recently selected for the Los Angeles Lift-Off Film Festival in the "New Voices and Shorts 1" category.
