In peripheral areas of metropolitan Lima, female domestic workers struggle with poor working conditions and low income. Asociación Grupo de Trabajo Redes (AGTR) helps workers establish a support network, reinforces their knowledge about their rights and obligations, and strengthens their vocational, interpersonal and negotiation skills to find better-paying jobs. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Peru. AGTR’s activities strengthen communities through education and training and build peer-to-peer learning and action networks.
