District Level Consultation in Gurgaon on Safety of Domestic Workers

Date: 24/10/2017  To 24/10/2017

Venue: Vikas Sadan, Gurgaon



Martha Farrell Foundation in collaboration with Participatory Research in Asia (PRIA) has been working with domestic workers in Delhi-NCR for the last one year. We seek to build the capacities of domestic workers from Gurgaon, Faridabad and South Delhi on their rights related to sexual harassment at workplace.

In continuation to our efforts, we are organizing a series of district level consultations in Gurgaon, Faridabad and South Delhi. The first consultation shall take place in Gurgaon on Tuesday, October 17, 2017 at Vikas Sadan in Gurgaon, which will:

  • Enable a dialogue between various stakeholders in the domestic work sector
  • Help these stakeholders identify their roles and responsibilities
  • Strengthen the legislative support available for the safety of domestic workers.

As a result of this dialogue, a strategic document shall be produced, which will throw critical light on the collectivization of domestic workers for advocating for their rights related to sexual harassment at workplace.
