Fe y Alegría and Social Justice in Uruguay

In summer 2012 undergraduate student Charlotte Markson spent three weeks conducting interviews in Uruguay as part of an ongoing initiative of the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs and the Center for Social Justice Research, Teaching and Service at Georgetown University. Charlotte worked with the Universidad Católica del Uruguay to investigate its work related to social justice and education. Charlotte visited two schools and numerous educational centers supported by the Jesuit education network Fe y Alegría (“Faith and Joy”), whose Uruguay-based branch was developed in 2008 in cooperation with the Universidad Católica. Charlotte’s investigation focused on the university’s contribution to social justice, Fe y Alegría’s approach towards education and its implementation in Uruguay, and the tension between public and private education for the poorest sector of Uruguay’s society.
