Listen to Us! Participation of child domestic workers in advocacy

Small Grants, Big Change

Small Grants, Big Change. Influencing policy and practice for child domestic workers
This report examines Anti-Slavery International’s project aimed at improving lives of child domestic workers by the realisation of a small grant scheme (SGS). This fresh approach for Anti-Slavery International and its partners in Costa Rica, India, Peru, Philippines, Tanzania and Togo has seen 52 fledgling local groups many led by child domestic workers themselves – provided with funds to support child domestic workers and influence policies and practices towards them across 9 countries. Closely monitored and mentored by project partners since 2009, these local groups have directly assisted thousands of child domestic workers and have changed the attitudes of local and national duty bearers to improve the lives of many more.

‘They Respect Their Animals More’

‘They Respect Their Animals More’ Voices of child domestic workers
This report is the product of group discussions and individual interviews with more than 400 current and former child domestic workers from urban and rural areas in Benin, Costa Rica, India, Nepal, Peru, Philippines, Tanzania and Togo, to inform about the situation and needs of child domestic workers in order to better target programmes and policies on the issue. It also aims to encourage thinking about child domestic workers not simply as subjects of concern, but as social actors able to articulate their needs and capable of transforming their own lives, and the lives of others.

Trafficking in Women, Forced Labour and Domestic Work: in the context of the Middle East and Gulf Region

Trafficking in Women, Forced Labour and Domestic Work: in the context of the Middle East and Gulf Region
Migrant female domestic workers around the world are often vulnerable to serious human rights abuses, because of such factors as their invisibility and the lack of protection and access to public services. The report investigates the experiences of migrant domestic workers in the region, the dynamics and workings of the migration process and how migration (if at all) contributes to trafficking; and looks at what are some of the key inter-connecting dynamics involved between slavery, trafficking, migration and forced labour.
It focuses particularly on several selected sending, receiving and transit countries (Egypt, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Lebanon, Sudan and Yemen).
