Dear GlobalGiving Supporters:
We are very happy with the beginning of 2014. January and February have been months to explore how much we did in the past year, and we are excited to say that we have exceeded most of our goals for 2013. In this report we want to share some of the most important accomplishments with the adult women who come to La Casa de Panchita to receive different services.
Throughout 2013, more than 1,500 women came to La Casa de Panchita to participate in at least one of our workshops, labor training sessions, legal counseling or psychological counseling sessions. Of that total, over 1,030 are seeking a job in domestic work through our employment agency, and 360 have obtained a job and signed a written contract with all the benefits established by the National Law for Domestic Workers.
We also informed other organizations about problems that domestic workers face, and how actions could be implemented to improve their working and living conditions. In terms of that result, we worked with 46 organizations, including public agencies, labor unions, other non-profit organizations and universities. In 2013, we developed 11 unique publications addressing issues related to domestic work in order to reach those organizations and the overall community.
We are very happy about what we have done so far, and once again thank you. It is with your support that we are able to continue.
We invite you to watch this three-minute video to learn more about the situation of domestic workers in Peru: http://english.cntv.cn/program/newshour/20140118/102758.shtml
