The goal of the Child Care Initiative Strategic Workshop is to determine the future direction of WIEGO's Child Care Initiative. Through this initiative WIEGO hopes to raise the visibility of childcare as an essential component of social protection for informal workers and to better understand the impact childcare has on women's economic empowerment. Currently, WIEGO is conducting research with informal worker organizations about child care issues. This research, as well as a literature review and a scoping of the main actors involved in these issues globally, will provide the basis for discussions at the Workshop.
