Life as a child domestic worker

Dear Friends,

Can you remember Bernardina? A few weeks ago we shared with you the story of her life as a child domestic worker. But we thought you should hear her experience, as well as Janet's (child domestic worker from the age of 11 till 18), directly from them. Sometimes it is difficult to let people understand how hard life as a child domestic worker is, so we would like to share with you this short video interview:

Please take a few minutes to watch it and consider supporting our project to protect girls from child domestic labor once again. Thank you!

Wishing you a Happy New Year,

Blanca Figueroa

A very special Christmas wish

Carmen, 10 year-old child domestic worker

Dear Friends,

We would like to thank you once again for your support and wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

At La Casa de Panchita we had a Christmas celebration with our girls! They had a lot of fun crafting Christmas decorations, dancing and playing. They also made wishes for 2016. Carmen, one of the child domestic workers who attends our workshops, wishes she could have “a better house and a computer”. This does not sound like a 10 year-old typical Christmas wish, does it?
As you may know, these girls come from San Juan de Miraflores, one of the poorest districts in the outskirts of Lima, where a great part of the population lives in shantytowns. Carmen explained she would like to have a computer to have access to more information when doing her homework and improve her grades.

We may not be able to give a computer to our girls (or a house!), but thanks to your support we are able to give them school support and a place where they can feel safe and enjoy their childhood.

AGTR-La Casa de Panchita is participating in Globalgiving’s Year-End Campaign and, with your help, could win special prizes to keep this project running a bit longer! Here’s the project: https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/empower-girls-and-women-peru/

Thank you!
