Fundraising Campaign of Chile YCW & Peru YCW

As part of the co-responsibility between Peru and Chile, various activities are being carried out, as set out in their plan, with the aim of strengthening the organizational process, particularly in the Chile YCW.

This process, which began at the 2016 International Council, has undergone a long journey to define a strategy in line with the movements' needs and to strengthen the organization, training and action.

For Chile and Peru, co-responsibility rests on constant accompaniment based on real-life experience, meaning that young people in Peru and Chile were able to experiment in the field with how they organize themselves, develop their analysis and training, and carry out their actions. This experience was a great success for the YCW, as young activists and young people in initiation were able to better understand and strengthen their motivations and commitment to the movement. In the process, the Peruvian and Chilean YCWs found the very meaning of the YCW: solidarity, an in-depth understanding of each young person's reality, and a way of facing life through their actions.

IYCW at the ILO Conference: Who Profits Must Contribute to Ending Inequality and Discrimination

ILO 2021 Errol

This year's International Labour Conference is being held in two segments. The second segment is running from 25th November to 11th December 2021.

Errol Alonzo, Carolin Moch and Sarah Prenger represented the IYCW in the second segment of this international assembly. On this occasion, Errol delivered a statement responding to the report of the Director-General of the ILO on inequality.

Starting his statement, Errol confirmed the Director-General’s report.

“Young workers from all over the world confirm the report. They confirm, for example, that workers with temporary contracts have been the first to be laid off; that informal workers have had to choose between starving and risking infection; that temporary workers on a weekly basis are not really able to interact with fellows; that a department leader was degraded after telling her employer about her pregnancy; and that a qualified platform worker is working without a contract.”
