The National Domestic Workers’ Movement [Registered as National Domestic Workers’ Welfare Trust under the Bombay Public Trust Act 1950, Regd. No. E-17253- (Mumbai)] has been at the forefront of championing the rights of domestic workers, children in domestic work and migrant domestic workers, since 1985. Today our work is spread across 16 states of India, engaging nearly 200,000 domestic workers in major cities, towns and villages.
NDWM encourages empowerment of domestic workers through solidarity, participation and leadership training. Together we work for the labour rights of domestic workers, seeking dignity and justice. While lobbying with Government to pass comprehensive legislation for protecting their rights, we also create strong public awareness to enable domestic workers to achieve a healthy recognition in society.
Over 30 years NDWM has achieved several gains for domestic workers and we are committed to continuing our work until every domestic worker is able to enjoy a life of dignity and justice with full rights as a worker.
