Child protection aid for Chile. (International Aid).

OTTAWA -- Universite du Quebec en Outaouais is partnered with Universidad de la Frontera to support increased respect for children's fights in Chile.

Focussing on the Araucania region in Chile, the two institutions will train Chilean students in psychology at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and support professionals working in organizations in Chile to strengthen their capacity to assist children and teens with psychological adaptation difficulties. In addition, a support unit dedicated to the improvement of services to children and youth of Araucania will be established.

The Universite du Quebec en Outaouais received $750,000 from the Canadian International Development Agency for this program.
