Specific Groups

WIEGO particularly focuses on four groups of informal workers:

Domestic Workers  Home-based Worker

Street Vendor  Waste Picker

We chose to work with these groups because they tend to be among the poorest informal workers and because women tend to be over-represented among them.

With and for each of these groups, WIEGO has:

  • helped strengthen and network membership-based organizations
  • improved national statistical data
  • generated grounded knowledge
  • undertaken policy analysis and advocacy
