The main goal of the skill training programs is to improve and standardize job skills of domestic workers. It is also aimed at improving the recognition and work standards of domestic workers and to enhance their employability as well as improve their standard of living. To continue improving domestic workers’ job quality and standards, NDWM conducted skill training programs across 16 States, during 2020 in which 5657 Domestic Workers participated and benefited.
