Cassandra Paynter, a University of Victoria student, created this digital story from her placement with the International Institute for Child Rights and Development.
“I am really excited to be involved in an organization that is making an international lasting impact with something that is so close to me heart," says Cassandra. "I see a dire need for children in the world to thoroughly understand they deserve justice equally across all countries in the world. Not only that, children and youth should have the opportunity to live a happy and full life.”
The story was developed and shared through Cassandra's participation in the University of Victoria's "Work in the Community," an interdisciplinary community service learning course offered by the Faculty of Social Sciences.
