Summary

In Peru, many women and girls work as domestic workers in precarious conditions. The aim is to help 300 girls obtain education and better jobs through school support and vocational training. In addition, 250 adult domestic workers will receive training to access decent jobs and fair wages, thus improving their lives and protecting their children from child labor.

Challenge

Half a million women and girls work as servants in Peru. Most come to Lima from rural poverty or shantytowns. The majority do not enjoy basic rights: schooling, a 6 day work week or minimum wage. Girls as young as 9 serve others to earn a meal. They care for young children, foregoing their own education. We allow girls the chance to reclaim their childhood through educational and recreational support. We also enable women to improve job skills, as they learn to negotiate better job conditions.

Solution

With access to school support, workshops aimed at making them aware of their rights and vocational training, 300 girls per year will have a chance to stay in school, complete their education and find better and qualified jobs. 250 skilled and informed adult domestic workers will have access to dignified employment and fair pay. They will take part in their own emancipation, improve the livelihood of their household and protect their children from child labor.

Long-Term Impact

We are helping break through a heritage of poverty and servitude passed from mother to daughter because of a lack of opportunity and education. As they gain skills, confidence and understanding of their rights, the 550 girls and women we serve each year will pursue better education and secure better jobs. They in turn will educate other domestic workers, and parents of young girls. They will fight to ensure the rights of all domestic workers are respected.
