Homemakers

Since 2013 CONFyE has joined the initiative driven by the Home Renaissance Foundation, an international NGO based in London,  that has as a mission to revalue the importance that society attributes to housework and raise the awareness about its social impact.

The presentation of the documentary Homemakers Project too place in the Legislature of Buenos Aires city; and included academics, managers and public officials who discussed their views about the subject.

On October 10 th of 2014, we launched the Latin American documentary "Create Home: make visible the invisible", an initiative held by CONFyE jointly with the Research Center for Culture, Word and Care, from the INALDE Business School from Colombia, in alliance wit the Home Renaissance Foundation.

More than 30 testimonies from all over Latin America were presented, 30 shared reflections about the value of housework for their lives and families. Among the interviewees are Juan Llach, former Education Minister of Argentina; María José Franco, Director at Pragma, advertisement agency from Peru; Luis  Sagarsazú, General Manager at MAna F&B from Venezuela; Horacio Barbeito, CEO at Walmart Chile; among other testimonies representing different realities of the region. We invite you to watch the results: www.homemakersproject.com/crearhogar

Documentary’s content:

Crear Hogar restates the economic vision that only values what can be quantified and has a price. Caring for those who we love and dedication to housework constitute an intangible from the economic point of view and yet are invaluable. Crear Hogar presents to men and women the challenge of rethink the value of dedication to home and take responsibility between both of them when a family project moves forward. Addressing this reality and making the invisible visible is not just a matter of each family but also requires the collaboration of all stakeholders, because public policy, media, companies, NGOs, etc. are all called to be protagonists of this commitment for the care of human ecology, understood as a responsibility of the whole society.



Support to public welfare campaign

During 2013 we set out to promote work - family balance in public opinion through a public welfare campaign. We developed a proposal that was selected against others by the Argentine Advertising Council to be developed during 2014, International Year of the Family declared by the UN.
We invite you to visit the campaign’s website http://cadacosaensulugar.org and answer the survey to know your level of integration between work and family life:
