Domestic Workers

Domestic workers in any country form a marginalized and highly vulnerable group – this is especially so in Bangladesh.They are not only disadvantaged, but also disenfranchised. The situation is more acute due to the fact that a very high proportion of the domestic workers are children and women.

Poor rural families often send their kids/women to the live and work with well-to-do urban families or abroad, often as a means to improve their own difficult economic conditions and to provide some path to a better future for their children. But they do not know about their rights and suffer in silence when these rights are violated.

They work very long hours without any specified working conditions. In most cases, they do not have ways to ventilate their grievances. They do not have any practical and effective legal process to enforce their rights or to ensure their benefits and privileges.

Domestic workers not only working in country but also travel abroad for employment, currently populating in the millions for Bangladeshis, concentrated in the Middle East, Europe and Southeast Asia.
