Philippine Informals’ Network for Advocacy Support (PINAS)

This advocacy-support network of informals will share best practices in organizing as well as information on sectoral issues. These will be processed by an ex-oficio Secretariat composed of public information officers in informal sector and informalized labor organizations, that will then coordinate with EILER – acting as a communication center – for eventual projection of these issues and information nationally and abroad.

Through this network, international linkages with other organization of informals may be channelled to encourage productive exchanges on organizing methods and informal sector concerns. It will also provide support services such as researches on informals, issue primers, organizing monographs, education materials, a website for open publication of related literature on informals, organizing skills trainings and fund-sourcing for informals’ projects.
