Details

This regional seminar was held in the frame work of the regional project "Combating violence against child and young domestic
workers in East Africa and the DRC through regulation and education", funded by the European Union and coordinated by IDAY.

This project aims at promoting policies and mechanisms that prevent and address violence against child and young domestic workers; it also advocates for their access to quality education and training.

The project is implemented in 5 countries: the DRC, Burundi, Rwanda, Kenya and Uganda, for a 3-year period, with 14 partners from civil society and governments. The partners undertook national survey, in each of their country, with the aim of assessing
domestic work and get a better knowledge on the socio-economic profile of the domestic workers, as well as the employers.

The study further sought to reveal the training expectations of domestic workers and the professional requirements from the employers. The partners also studied the legal and policy frame work for domestic work in their country.
