The National Domestic Workers Movement (NDWM) organized a wonderful 2-days workshop for the members and leaders of domestic workers unions from Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Delhi, Goa, and Madhya Pradesh etc. on 27th November 2018, at St Pius X College, Mumbai Maharashtra.

 

Domestic Workers Sector Skill Council addressed the attendees about the benefits of Skill Development and the long term impact of their
overall livelihood improvement. It was wonderful to see that the domestic workers were showing interest on their individual skill development and interacted with us regarding our job roles, placements, wages and migration.

BENEFITS DERIVED

Apart from spreading the word about DWSSC and the need for training in this domain, some of the noteworthy takeaways were:

  •  Window of opportunity to get increased mobilization in places we already have a strong hold in like Madhya Pradesh and
    Delhi.
  • Meeting various state union leaders at one platform.
  • Domestic workers view on how to help solve the problem of migration
  • Domestic workers view on how to help  them get a well-paid job in India itself without giving them situations to migrate outside India.

Built Process

It requires great collaborations, partnerships and events such as this for connecting the dots while working towards attaining our goal as an SSC and thus help commence the change we want to see in future
