985K of Venezuelans arrived in Peru recently escaping from extreme poverty, violence and a dictatorship. Half of them are women who cannot find decent work due to xenophobia. To support them we have developed Loop, a mobile app that connects Venezuelan women with per-hour work opportunities to clean homes. We are currently preparing a massive campaign to share their backgrounds, stories and dreams to raise empathy, respect and trust for Venezuelans, encouraging Peruvians to hire their services.
When almost one million of Venezuelans arrived in Peru, even Peru opened its borders to them, there was no plan nor infrastructure to receive such an immense number of people all of a sudden. The Peruvian economy collapsed. In addition, the media put the spotlight in isolated crimes commited by Venezuelans. Discrimination against them increased making it now extremely difficult for them to find a job. To support 1500 Venezuelan women through Loop, we need to overcome mistrust against Venezuelans
Loop is an app that connects Venezuelan women with per-hour work opportunities to clean homes in Lima. It offers them decent work, flexible working hours and very good incomes. We are preparing a documentary to increase awareness among Peruvian population about what Venezuelan women have gone through and encourage them to hire their services. Loop has been developed with the generous funding from the JuntosEsMejor Challenge, a partnership between USAID and the Inter-American Development Bank.
Within two years, we will have empowered 1500 Venezuelan migrant women in Peru. By 2022, we will replicate this in each country that has received massive Venezuelan migration: Colombia, Ecuador, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina. Through the documentary, the permanent awareness campaign and Loop we will transform migration into a real opportunity. With your support, thousands of vulnerable Venezuelan women will be able to build the life they dreamed about when they left everything they love behind.
