A Home for Panchita

Foto_Elena2When Elena turned 10, she was sent to Lima to “help out” at a relative’s home. She cleaned, cooked and took care of the children and was treated as “the help”, not as family. At 14, Elena started attending La Casa de Panchita. With us, she learned how to speak for herself, improved her Spanish reading and writing skills and improved her grades at school.

La Casa de Panchita exists because girls like Elena still arrive in Lima from the poverty of the Andes and shantytowns to work into the night cooking, cleaning and caring for other families’ children. They are years behind in their schooling and often doomed to being domestic workers their entire life. La Casa de Panchita is at a critical juncture. Either we continue to expand our impact by taking the leap to purchase our “casa”, the location of our services, our radio program and the “home away from home” for hundreds of domestic workers of all ages, or we will need to close our doors.
