SDG 16: Peace, justice and strong institutions

My arrival in Bolivia at the end of 2015 coincided with two important milestones for the country and for the organisation I came to serve. On the one hand, Bolivia was looking forward to its first Justice Summit, as a result of a long and comprehensive process of reflection and consultation on the reform of the country’s justice system. On the other hand, UNODC was on the verge of developing a new multiannual assistance framework for the period 2016-2020 that needed to fully take into account Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development.

SDG 11: Sustainable cities and communities

Volunteerism enables youth engagement, leadership and participation

Within Latin America and the Caribbean, young people between the ages of 15 and 24 account for 20 per cent of the population. This is the largest percentage of youth in this region, ever.  The statistics are dire: 35 million of these young people never attended school, 39 per cent live in poverty and 25 per cent are unemployed.

El voluntariado fortalece la implicación, el liderazgo y la participación juvenil

En América Latina y el Caribe el 20 por ciento de la población está representada por jóvenes de 15 a 24 años. Es el porcentaje de jóvenes más alto en la historia del subcontinente. Pero las estadísticas son implacables: 35 millones de ellos nunca han ido a la escuela, el 39 por ciento vive en la pobreza y el 25 por ciento está sin empleo.

SDG 16: Peace, justice and strong institutions

La Paz, Bolivia: Durante la misión que llevé a cabo durante un año en Bolivia como Joven Voluntaria de las Naciones Unidas, trabajé en la Oficina del Alto Comisionado de las Naciones Unidas para los Derechos Humanos (OACNUDH) dentro de la Unidad de los Pueblos Indígenas. De esta forma, me familiaricé con los derechos de los pueblos indígenas en un país donde el 42% de la población se considera indígena.

La Paz, Bolivia: During my one-year assignment in Bolivia as a UN Youth Volunteer, I worked at the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) within the Indigenous Peoples Unit. I became familiar with indigenous peoples’ rights in a country where 42% of the population identify themselves as indigenous.

My background as a human rights lawyer helped me to understand the serious challenges and threats that are living the Guarani peoples in the Chaco region.

La Paz, Bolivie: Au cours de ma mission d’un an en Bolivie au poste de Jeune Volontaire des Nations Unies, j’étais rattachée au Groupe de Veille pour les Peuples autochtones, sous l’autorité du Haut-Commissariat des Nations Unies aux Droits de l’Homme (HCDH). J’ai approfondi mes connaissances des droits des peuples autochtones dans un pays où 42 % de la population s’identifient comme tels.

SDG 16: Peace, justice and strong institutions

La Paz, Bolivia:  When I heard about the opportunity to come to Bolivia as a UN Volunteer with the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), I was very excited to be able to take on new challenges in my professional and personal life. With a Master’s Degree in International Studies, specializing in Human Rights, and experience in Latin America, I felt that this volunteer opportunity was ideal for me.
