Asociación Grupo de Trabajo Redes (AGTR) is a nongovernmental organisation (NGO) founded on August 17th, 1989. It is registered in the Public Records of Lima (Peru) as a Legal Entity, with number 10555.
A country where child domestic labor has been eradicated and adult domestic workers’ full citizenship and rights are recognised.
Endorse the access to domestic service exclusively of those with legal age to perform it, in compliance with their rights and high efficiency standards.
Urge the withdrawal of child domestic workers from the labour market by their families. Develop domestic workers’ personal and labour skills, to enable them to negotiate better terms of employment in compliance with their rights. Protect domestic workers from abuse and exploitation, by carrying out political and social advocacy, in order to achieve the full recognition of their rights.
- Protect, with their participation, all the rights of those with legal age to work in domestic service, preventing, at the same time, youngsters who have not yet reached the minimum legal working age to access this occupation.
- Advocate for the State and civil society to become allies in achieving the complete inclusion of those marginalised because of their status of domestic workers, by ensuring the actual recognition of all their rights.
- Develop a working methodology framework aimed at moving people and institutions to get involved and replicate good care practices when attending to domestic workers.
- Foster domestic service in Peru as a dignified occupation for adult women, contributing to the country’s development.
We treat others as we would like to be treated: we believe that we all deserve respect and reject all forms of discrimination.
We raise the voice of those who are discriminated against, so that society and the State provide them with equal opportunities.
At AGTR we believe that domestic service work is a decent occupation, in which the rights and duties of domestic workers and employers must go hand in hand.
We are committed so that the women who work in domestic service enjoy the same labor standards of other professions and so that girls, adolescents and adults are recognized as citizens with full rights.
