From June 1 through June 15th, I am visiting the Philippines with the USC School of Social Work for a global immersion program. The immersion program is focusing on the Feminist Empowerment Model (FEM) of intervention and practice, using human trafficking as a case study for which to implement FEM.
The USC School of Social Work has partnered with University of the Philippines in Manila (UPM), and WeGovern Institute (www.wegoverninstitute.org).
My fellow classmates and I will be posting about our experiences and observations during the program on a blog. Please visit this link, http://philippinesusc.wordpress.com, to read the blog entries. Posting about my experiences will be shared soon.
