Dear Friends and Colleagues,
We are looking forward to seeing you at the above Roundtable Discussion that we at Babaylan- Denmark (The Philippine Women’s Network) is co-arranging with the CFO, Commission of Filipinos Overseas team on the Au Pair Scheme and other issues pertaining to Filipino migrants in Denmark. The Commission on Filipinos Overseas (CFO) is the arm of the Philippine government that oversees and supports initiatives that strengthen the welfare of its citizens around the world. From 22 to 25 November, CFO’s Key Officials are visiting Denmark as part of its Nordic tour to experience firsthand
the conditions of Filipino migrants including au pairs, in the host countries. The Invitation for you -and one other colleague from your organization/institution – is to input on this Special Roundtable Discussion to bring needed change. It is no secret that Filipino au pairs have
recently been unwittingly in the limelight, but without a chance to respond or defend themselves. They are blamed: for many things: for not speaking fluent Danish and thus jeopardizing Danish children’s future, for sending all their money home, for getting pregnant with some getting abortions,
for being meek slaves, for not being cultural, worse not having any culture, etc. The list goes on and all being chronicled in Danish media. The Au Pair “industry” is dominated by very few players who have all the means to influence policy, while concerned others without financing remain unheard,
helpless. It is time to open up the debate and hear from a broader spectrum. Please indicate if you want to participate as Panellist or Discussant by sending a mail to any of the three (3) members of the Co-ordinating committee. We eagerly await your speedy reply and hope
you can join us in an interesting afternoon where we can engage in genuine exchange of views and initiatives so we can forward the Au Pair scheme in a Win-Win situation for both the Philippines and Denmark.

Yours sincerely,
Filomenita M. Hoegsholm  Babaylan Denmark Founder
Ana Lindenhann , Babaylan Denmark current Chairperson
Judy Jover, Babaylan Denmark PRO and former Chairperson
