To spread and defend the rights of excluded people who face discrimination due to poverty, age, gender, color, language or culture. Our methods include implementing politically effective actions, services and other necessary means. Our work stands for gender equality and that the marginalized people themselves recognize their rights and strive to realize them through strategies which express their empowerment and that develop through their active participation.

Sharing our joys!

Dear GlobalGiving Supporters:

Wednesday July 16th is a very special day! It's BONUS DAY and GlobalGiving will match all donations to our project at 50%! This makes this date even more special and important for us:  on the same day, we, Asociación Grupo de Trabajo Redes (AGTR), celebrate our 25th anniversary!

Domestic workers, former domestic workers, professionals, students and Peruvian and foreign volunteers, we all pursuit that children in child domestic work (CDW) will be withdrawn from child labor by their families; we develop labor and personal skills of adult domestic workers so that they can get better jobs in which their rights are respected; and likewise we protect domestic workers of all ages from abuse and exploitation advocating for the full respect of their rights.

Some of our greatest joys in these 25 years are:

  • Young women, former girls working in CDW who used to come to La Casa de Panchita, manage their own organized groups and provide direct services to children currently working in CDW or at risk of CDW within their own communities. Their work is highly appreciated.
  • Adolescents in CDW and adult domestic workers have learned to face their emotional problems with guidance from a psychologist or an expressive arts therapist.
  • Every year almost 400 women take part in job training sessions, a requirement to access to the free services offered by our employment agency, LA CASA DE PANCHITA S.A.C.
  • Thousands of domestic workers have received information and assistance related to their labour rights and duties, recognised by Law 27986 – Law of domestic workers. They have succeeded in improving their working conditions.
  • Nearly 20,000 people have listened to our weekly radio program “No somos invisibles” (We are not invisible). Our program targets mothers of girls in CDW and aims to motivate them to take their girls out of work or to improve their daughters` working conditions, when withdrawal is not possible.
  • Parents have recognized that investing in education is more important that putting their children to work especially if they do not have the legal minimum age to be employed.
  • And more joys…

We wish to invite you to be part of our celebrations, by checking out our new website: http://gruporedes.org/ We also invite you to like our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/lacasadepanchita) and get all the news from the events we are organizing for this 25th anniversary!

Please consider participating in this special event and make the most of your support! Remember, BONUS DAY starts on July 16 at 9am (Eastern Time).

Thank you for your support!

News from Jugando Aprendo

Dear GlobalGiving supporters:

We are back in school season! Classes started in March and we have been doing lots of things with the girls since then.  With all the new books purchased recently, the tutoring sessions are more interesting and fun at the ludoteca Jugando Aprendo. Local promotoras have more resources to help the children with their homework and you can see how things are improving within this activity.

Counseling sessions with the psychologist are also working very well. Children and parents have one group session with her per month. In addition they are having individual sessions to address specific issues. Small changes towards adequate parenting behaviors are shown by the families.

This Sunday, the second Sunday in May, we celebrate Monther´s day in Peru. This is an excellent opportunity to strength mother-child relationships. At the ludoteca, our children are making handicraft projects for their mothers.

Thank you for making all these changes possible. We are grateful to count with supporters like you!

Kind regards,
