Sol Kanee Lecture on Peace and Justice

 
Grade 10 and 11 Asia Pacific Studies Intermediate and Senior scholars attended the Sol Kanee Lecture on Peace and Justice at the University of Manitoba on Wednesday October 2nd.
 
The featured speaker was Anuradha Koirala, the founder of "Maiti Nepal", a non-governmental organization dedicated ending Human Trafficking in Nepal and south Asia.
 
Before the lecture began, students took advantage of the opportunity to take part in a massive "Trivial Pursuit" style game promoting academic integrity organized by the University of Manitoba Student Union.
 
The lecture featured contributions from Member of Parliament Joy Smith, a national advocate of the struggle to end Human Trafficking as well as members of the Nepali Student Association who performed a ceremonial dance of welcome.
 
Ms Koirala's organization has succeeded in rescuing more than 12 0000 women and children from forced prostitution, indentured servanthood and slavery. She was named CNN's Hero of the Year in 2010. Students benefitted from her accumulated experiences and advice. Several students have already launched an awareness and fundraising campaign in support of Maiti Nepal. Asia Pacific students will take up the issue next spring during their Role Play examination in March 2014, during a United Nations style debate and vote.
