“Increasing the capacity of domestic workers of different origins to respond to sexual violence through community-based interventions”

The overall aim of the project is to increase the capacity of migrant domestic workers to respond to sexual violence through developing and testing community-based interventions. Among the project’s objectives are to:

  • describe the problem in the partner countries and assess the victims’ needs
  • map community resources, allies, interventions and policies addressing sexual violence in migrants
  • design culturally and linguistically appropriate tools and interventions to address sexual violence in migrant domestic workers
  • develop a pool of accredited workers and community members who could facilitate community education and long-term community development programmes.
