Challenge

Two million Indian women domestic workers are affected by this project. We work to raise awareness of the issues they face and to mobilize them so that they know their rights. We work to create ID cards for them so that there is a documentation system for domestic workers. The project aims to help rural and urban-based domestic workers so that they are not exploited.

Solution

Drives are conducted to help domestic workers acquire membership and ID cards so that they are registered. Health Camps are organized to provide regular check-ups for domestic workers and provide them with proper health care, advice and medication.
