Bonderman Travel Fellowship

Mamie Guillaume



2006 Fellows

Travel Locations: Latin America, Southern & Eastern Africa, East Asia

Guillame plans to explore the cultures of three major regions of the world: Latin America, Southern and Eastern Africa, and East Asia, with particular focus on children’s needs. Her goal is to begin to understand the unique cultures in each region so that in the future she will be a better advocate for children’s rights internationally. These regions highlight three particular threats to children: poverty, HIV/AIDs epidemic, and sexual exploitation. Per region, she plans to travel to the countries most affected by these threats and learn about the culturally specific needs of their children.
