The ‘RISE’ 2017-2018 group

RISE is a club founding behind the beliefs that every man and woman should be treated equally, that is what it stands for, and that is what it is. In the club, we also help in an hogar,  a place where orphaned teenage mothers go for help; we go to the hogar every other Saturday to teach them English. I believe that the learning outcomes involves #6 (demonstrate engagement with issued of global significance), and #7 (recognize and consider the ethics of choice and actions).

The first learning outcome that I believe applies to this community and service is the sixth one; it states that a student demonstrates engagement with issued of global significance. I consider that one of the main issues that plague our society is sexism, it is an issue seen all over the world and that needs to be corrected. Having grown up with an almost all female family, I have seen some of the sexist limitations that my sisters, cousins, aunts, and mom have; I joined this club with the idea of putting a mark on the end to sexism, I believe I’m doing the right thing.

The other learning outcome that I believe this activity has is the recognition and consideration of ethics of choice and actions. I think this one is self-explanatory. To be in this club, one must believe in equal rights. Therefore, one must always be considered if what you’re doing is ethical considering the rough environment lived by a woman. It has taught me to continually think of the ethics behind a decision, if it was made because I was a man, or did the person have genuinely good intentions?
