Purpose of this report

To present a comprehensive implementation strategy that will be used by the ILO, SADSAWU and other key partners to guide the development of two pilot co-operatives in the area of domestic work.

The plan puts a heavy emphasis on the development of the co-operatives’ internal leadership structures, for members to increasingly assume responsibility of business management and to ensure that each co-operative gradually aims to evolve into fully independent enterprises.

In addition, this report will inform the work of the ILO in terms of how to support the constituents and other key partner organizations on the ground. The report presents concrete steps and recommendations as a roadmap for the implementation of the two pilot domestic worker co-operatives.
