For more than 30 years, working children in Peru have been organizing together for their rights as workers, as children, and as full citizens. This movement of NNATs, or niñas, niños, y adolescentes trabajadores is the focus of my current research project.
Some of the major organizations in this movement include MANTHOC and MNNATSOP, which both have local groups as well as regional and national organizing structures. INFANT provides support and training for the children and youth in the movement, while IFEJANT provides similar resources for the adults who participate in the movement. Check out my research information for more details on what I am studying with these movements, or read the blog posts for some research findings, analysis, and commentary.
