World Day Against Child Labour 2004: Behind Closed Doors: Child domestic labour

Too many children who are in domestic labour are victims of exploitation. As they clean, cook, care for their employer’s children, do heavy housework, they are deprived of rights due to them as children in international law — the right to play; visits with their family and friends; decent accommodation; and protection from sexual harassment or physical and mental abuse.
