Prior to the Centre’s inception in 2001, Edith Murogo employed domestic workers in her home and taught them home management skills. A unique employer, Edith strived to understand the challenges that faced this marginalized group. She treated them with respect and gained their respect in return. From a healthy and open relationship with her employees, she soon became aware of the stigma and tribulations associated with domestic workers and opened her home as a training and advocacy center for them.
In its pilot phase in 2001, CDTD was known as Domestic Support Services, and initially served 5 girls from Kibera.
