I would like to invite Filipino naupairs near Copenhagen area to attend the Formal Introduction of Babaylan Denmark Au Pair Hub which I will the over all Coordinator but it will consist of aupairs.
Here is the official Invitation from Babaylan Denmark
Babaylan-Denmark, the Philippine Women’s Network, is a non-profit NGO which, since it’s founding in 1997, has consistently worked on several fronts: political, cultural, educational, social (including labour rights) to improve the situation of Filipinas in Danish society. For the past 10 years we have been actively working to help uplift the situation of au pairs in Denmark through activities like fora, dialogues, seminars, orientations, socially useful events, sports tournaments, and cultural immersion programs. We also introduced modules on sexual and reproductive rights as well as financial literacy.
In consonance with Filipino officials abroad, particularly the Nordic ambassadors and consuls, we campaigned for policy changes in the deployment of au pairs. This resulted in the Philippine Government finally lifting the ban on Filipino citizens leaving to become au pairs in Denmark. As of March 2011, au pair deployment has been officially endorsed as a cultural exchange programme under the Commission of Filipinos Overseas, a unit under the Office of the President, which actively discourages the use of agencies and payment of exorbitant fees to recruiters.
With the increasing number of au pairs in Denmark we think that we can better work towards their empowerment by establishing a chapter consisting of au pairs and assisted by Babaylan Denmark’s officers. We are happy to invite you to the
