Objectives

Organization Structure: 
 The organization is registered under the Ministry of Labour and Social Security. It has a leadership structure including a President, Vice President, General Secretary and two deputies. Decisions are taken at council meetings, executive, and general meetings. Leaders are elected by members, and there are staff employees.
Objectives: 
 To look into the plight and rights of domestic workers by representing, sensitizing, and educating them. Fighting for their conditions and decent work for them.
Strategy: 
 The organization began as an Association in 2007; recruiting members with a door to door campaign, they formed a union. Because of National legislation, many workers feel that they are inadequately represented. Tough laws and length processes of justification makes their lobbying a long process. However, through workshops with stakeholders, lobbying, advertising, and legal service provisions, the union seeks to improve conditions for domestic workers. Most important success to date is grievance handling.
