Date: 2020-04-18

Khidmatgaar Open Mic: About Domestic Workers is an opportunity to share about the issues and expectations linked to the workers in Pakistan

There are reported an estimated 15 million+ child labourers, 9.5+ million of which were female. Around 500+ cases of violence against child domestic workers were reported in the media from January 2015 to December 2019 while as many as 58 children lost their lives from violence committed by their employers. Countless cases remained unreported. One of the few reasons behind this booming unreported violence is the lack of legislation providing protection, influential backgrounds of employers, the acute class difference and the solitary nature of the job. Introducing The Khidmatgaar Open Mic. theme is "About Domestic Workers” will be a chance to talk about the issues and expectations linked to the workers in Pakistan.
