Peace and Hope Visit Nyack Rockland
Alfonso Wieland and Rolando Perez of the Paz y Esperanza Institute in Lima, Peru recently visited the Nyack College Center for Scholarship and Global Engagement (CSGE) Rockland office.
Paz y Esperanza is a Christian human rights organization committed to defending and promoting justice for underserved people in Latin America. Founded in 1996 by a coalition of pastors, professionals and evangelical churches, the non-profit has offices in Lima, Bolivia, Ecuador, the United States and the United Kingdom.
Wieland and Perez shared with CSGE interns about the important work that the organization is doing to address the rights of women and children who are overwhelmingly victims of domestic violence, child abuse, and human trafficking. The organization is intentional about advocating the importance of a Christian’s relationship with God and social involvement on a grassroots level. “Spiritually has to embrace all of life,” explains Perez.
Paz y Esperanza is run by teams of lawyers, psychologists, social workers, educators, and pastors. It also provides training for leaders on how to work with people who are in oppressive circumstances.
