News from La Casa de Panchita

Dear GlobalGiving Supporters:

Wednesday June 12th is a very special day! Thanks to your support GlobalGiving has upgraded our status to Superstar! This means that on June 12th GlobalGiving will match all donations to our project by 50%! Please consider participating in this special event and make the most of your support!

June 12th is also the International Day Against Child Labor. Thanks to your help we have achieved a lot, but there is still a long way to go! So many children in Peru are trapped by domestic work and need your support to get the chance to build a brighter future!

Our work with young domestic workers continues and we keep inspiring young girls through our Sunday activities. They are always very exited to come to La Casa de Panchita to improve their skills through handicrafts workshops, learn more about their rights and receive help with their homework.

Your commitment has been so great that it has encouraged us to want to do more for children in child domestic work! We take advantage of the great opportunity GlobalGiving is offering to launch a new project to help children trapped in domestic labor get their childhood back and get the chance to build a brighter future. Learn more about this initiative:

Please consider supporting this effort. All day Wednesday June 12th, starting at 9am EST (This time in your time zone). GlobalGiving will match all donations by 50%, up to $1,000 per donor. Every little bit helps. This is a great opportunity to make your donation grow and support our children!

Thank you for your continued support to our cause!

With gratitude,

Blanca Figueroa
