Our workshop are now online!

Dear Supporters,

As you may know, in Peru we are now in a second lockdown, since January 31, that will last at least until the end of February. Given the circumstances, we are now providing training, legal orientation, and job placement services online. We knew most of our beneficiaries have smartphones and could, in theory, join online training sessions. However, we were afraid many of them would not have sufficient data plans that would allow them to attend all the required sessions, since they use prepaid lines and often do not have the means for top-ups nor a wifi connection at home. Thankfully we are now able to start a data subsidy program, through which we will identify those domestic workers who wish to take part in AGTR's workshop, but cannot pay for a data plan and we will pay for a one-month data package for their mobile line. This will help us make sure that women willing to improve their livelihood and job conditions still have the chance to do so and are not further marginalized due to the pandemic, social distancing, and the new online social distanced society we are living in. 

This new initiative, together with the new scholarship program we told you about in a previous report, is aimed at supporting women employed in domestic service during these complicated times and at keeping the momentum we had gained before the pandemic. Over the last two years, AGTR took part in congressional workgroups that led to the ratification of the International Labor Organization Convention on Domestic Workers by the Peruvian Government and the approval of a new law regulating their sector. So, now more than ever is time to keep pushing forward!

Please, consider renewing your much-appreciated support to our project and let's make a difference together! Thank you!

Warm regards,

Andrea Gandolfi
