News from the Ludoteca Jugando Aprendo

Dear GlobalGiving supporters:

We are very happy and thankful for your support this second year.

This past February, we started for the very first time the “Ludoverano” workshops. These are a series of fun activities for the kids such as dancing classes, handicrafts, soccer, voleyball, and first aid training. We wanted for the kids to have a great time at the Ludoteca during their school vacation, a time to learn, use their creativity, and develop new skills. At the end of the summer, the kids prepared a show for their family and friends to present what they learned. Some volunteers and members of another NGO called Documental Perú alsoo joined the celebration.

In March school started and so the tutoring sessions at the Ludoteca. All the kids come always willing to learn, they use our books and other supplies. They also, as usual, get a nutricious snak every time, they love it!

Thank you to all of you GlobalGiving friends!

What happens to girls exposed to child labor?

Elena

Dear Friends,

At La Casa de Panchita we have had special events to celebrate the Domestic Worker's International Day (March, 30th) with our girls in child domestic labor and adult domestic workers. Thanks to your support, the girls could take a break and go to the movies to watch the acclaimed comedy-drama "The Maid". For adult domestic workers, we organised a special workshop in which they learned how to cook traditional Peruvian dishes, while enjoying amazing food!

On the occasion of this Domestic Worker's International Day (Today!) we would like to take the chance to share with you a (very) short video on what happens to girls exposed to child domestic labor. We would also like to share with you Elena's story, as a testimony of the importance of the work you are helping us carry out at La Casa de Panchita:

When Elena turned 10, she was sent to Lima to “help out” at a relative’s home. She cleaned the house, cooked and took care of the children and was treated as “the help”, not as family. She barely had time to sleep at night and no time at all to do her homework. She remembers how much her employer yelled at her and how she was ashamed of talking about it with others. When she was 14, Elena started attending La Casa de Panchita. With us, she learned how to speak for herself, she worked hard to improve her Spanish reading and writing skills and improved her grades at school, receiving the education wvwry child deserves!

As you may know we started a nwe project to secure a safe place for our girls and to keep providing them with the support they need. Chech it out by following the link below and please, take a minute (literally!) to watch the video, click HERE.  Elena and other girls like her need us!

Thank you!

Dear Friends,

Thanks to your support we have already raised more than $8,000 to keep our center for girls in child domestic labor up and running! We are a bit closer to securing a safe place for our girls and keep providing them with the support they need. At AGTR-La Casa de Panchita everybody is working hard to make this happen. This month we are organising two fundraising events, which will also help raise awareness about our campaign. We will be posting pictures and reports on our social media. Follow us to learn more more (links can be found on our project page).

On the occasion of the Domestic Worker's International Day, Monday, March 30th, we would like to take the chance to share with you a (very) short video on what happens to girls exposed to child domestic labor.
