The book, "Unheard, Unseen, Unreached Part II" contains excerpts where the domestic workers and child domestic workers have told their stories expressing their pain and fear and how the movement has played key role by becoming a ray of hope in their lives.

Resource Type

Research reports, working paper

Details

These stories also highlight and enrich the readers how some of them have become actors in joining the movement to partake in the struggle to become the voice of their fellow domestic workers.

This Book is dedicated to all the women and child domestic workers in whose life, the intervention of National Domestic Workers' Movement has made a difference and to all the key players who enable us to take up their cause to create a world that recognises domestic work as a decent form of labour.

We hope that the readers get sensitized to become aware of the plight of women and child domestic workers and are inspired to extend their support to ensure a dignified life to these vulnerable groups.
