Tony Hoffman, Ph.D, teaches a course on Children and War at UC Santa Cruz in Santa Cruz, California. Through creative outlets, students strived to create projects focused on encouraging community outreach, the spread of knowledge, and an awareness of what children, girls, and women face throughout the world (and specifically in regions of Africa). The DRC group planned and executed an outreach event on the UCSC campus focusing on Sexual Gender-Based violence and various other issues that girls and women in the DRC are confronted with daily. In providing a creative outlet to express the importance of these issues, the DRC group in the Children and War course were able to spread awareness of a continuing problem that is often neglected. They hope to shed light on what is happening in a widely unknown conflict, and this slideshow is a small representation of their efforts.
