Gender and good governance training program
GGTP conduct a seminer on domestic workers rights
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. 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.
