Our mission is to help build strong, democratic domestic workers’ organisations to protect domestic workers’ rights everywhere.

Domestic/household workers demand respect for our rights as workers, and recognition for the vital work we do. We have been servants, maids, ‘helpers’,  and even slaves. Many suffer abuse from employers. We say, “No more!” Happily, many fellow workers and others in society, governments – and even some employers – now agree with us.

Our mission is to help build strong, democratic domestic workers’ organisations to protect domestic workers’ rights everywhere. Today the IDWN brings together over 70 organisations in some 35 countries. The IDWN is a network of domestic workers’ organisations across the world. Today the IDWN brings together over 70 organisations in some 35 countries.

In the IDWN there are trade unions and associations of domestic workers, local or national. We welcome any organisation that is member-based and democratic – where domestic workers are in the driving seat.

We also work closely with our supporters – trade unions, the Global Union Federations, the ILO, networks of women workers and of migrant workers, academics, the media, and more.
