In November and December 2021 the team from Associação de Trabalhadores em Domicílio (ATEMDO) organized face-to-face meetings with associations and self-employed HBWs in Miravânia- Minas Gerais; Osasco, Guarulhos and Artur Nogueira- São Paulo; and an online meeting with Artsol Association of Aracati city, Ceará.
The project “Ancestrality: redeeming knowledge to build the future” supported by HomeNet International and WIEGO was presented in all meetings. The International Labour Organization Convention 177, on Home-based Work, instruments for formalization, principles of solidarity economy and solidary revolving funds were discussed with participants. A questionnaire of 79 questions about the living and working conditions of ATEMDO’s members was also applied.
The activities carried out were rich in exchanges between participants. At the end of most of the activities, local solidarity revolving funds were created. In addition, there was also participation of local public authorities, which helped to strengthen the social dialogue and advance better living and working conditions for all HBWs.
