IDAY participated to the European Development Days 2016 in Brussels with a stand on “Protect child domestic workers in Africa” at the EDD Village.

During 2 days (15-16 June), we welcomed participants from different backgrounds (african local NGOs, officials, academics, …) to exchange about child domestic workers in East Africa and the DRC.

Our Project Coordinators from the DRC, Rwanda, Kenya and Uganda were present with us at the stand through an ongoing video broadcast.
