Awareness Guide for Female Domestic Workers

IWSAW undertook an awareness-raising campaign that entailed developing, printing, and distributing brochures to domestic workers in Lebanon.

With a grant from the Foundation of Open Society Institute, IWSAW developed and printed the brochure for the campaign. The brochure was written in English and immediately translated into three languages, A total of 24,000 brochures were printed.

Since the printing process has been finalized in December 2010, IWSAW has been working on disseminating the brochure to migrant domestic workers in Lebanon.

Update: We are currently working on updating this guide for the year 2016. In addition, we are working on producing an awareness guide for Lebanese families wishing to hire a domestic worker. These guides will provide information and guidance to both domestic workers and their employers, keeping them aware about their responsibilities both to themselves and to one another.
