Why volunteer with us?
In Peru, half a million women are employed to clean, cook and care for children in private homes. Invisible to society, the vast majority work up to 75 hours a week without rest, and earn less than the minimum wage ($280).
To ensure that work in domestic service is carried out only by those who are of the legal age to do it, and that this work is performed with efficiency and respect for the rights of the worker.
We have received volunteer support from people independently and through institutions such as:
