Decent work for domestic workers in Asia and the Pacific: Manual for trainers

Invisible and undervalued no more! Domestic work is now recognized as a true occupation and domestic workers have the right to decent work, respect and dignity just like all other workers. These principles are now enshrined in international labour standards aimed at improving the working and living conditions of the millions of workers - many of them women and girls, and often migrants - caring for the families and households of others.
