It takes a lot of strength, courage and determination to overcome life’s obstacles and DLW takes advantage of this space to talk about black women and their difficulties in accessing the labour market.
The vulnerability of black women to unemployment is 50% higher. A study by Instituto de Pesquisa Econômica Aplicada (Ipea) shows that for every 1 percentage point more in the unemployment rate, black women suffer, on average, an increase of 1.5 percentage points.
“The lack of professional experience and the need to reconcile work with educational training are some of the factors that make it difficult for young people to enter the job market” highlights Maíra Franca, one of the authors of Ipea’s work.
DLW’s mission is to inspire young people in Rio de Janeiro to dream of a better future, through access to quality education, decent work opportunities and socioeconomic inclusion.
We work to change this inequality scenario and promote more equity and social justice!
We have many challenges and the dreams of the participants are unlimited. We thank our network of partners, volunteers and workforce for being with us in the journey for collective transformation.
