Angel Benedicto, former child domestic worker form Tanzania, recognised by the Queen with a Young Leader Award.

Angel’s story

Angel is from Tanzania and worked as a live-in domestic worker from the age of fourteen.

“I looked after two children, cleaned, washed clothes, fetched water and cooked. I woke up at 5:30am and worked until I went to bed at 11pm.”

With our support, Angel went on to influence the international domestic work convention and was recognised by the Queen with the Young Leader Award in 2015.
