The International Labour Organization is launching the report "Working with Migrant Domestic Workers in Lebanon (1980-2012): A Mapping of NGO Services" on Tuesday 27 November, 2012 at the Holiday Inn Dunes Hotel, Verdun, Beirut.
The report results from the activities of the Programme for Protecting the Rights of Women Migrant Domestic Workers in Lebanon (PROWD) and traces the history of NGO involvement with women migrant domestic workers (WMDWs) in Lebanon since the early 1980s. It aims to explore the approaches underlying NGO interventions and partnerships. Further to this analytical component, the report includes a directory of the current services available to WMDWs across Lebanon. We expect the findings of this report to guide NGOs in establishing efficient referral systems for WMDWs. It will also guide new entrants in carving out their niche in the WMDW subfield, and donors in supporting initiatives for the promotion of decent working and living conditions for WMDWs.
