Changing the Conversation by Dignifying Domestic Work

Launched in 2001, the Domestic Workers Transformation Program (DWTP), is a visionary initiative dedicated to empowering Domestic Workers in Kenya through comprehensive workforce development programs. Recognizing the vital role that Domestic Workers play in our communities, we believe in changing the narrative surrounding Domestic Work and Care Work and transforming the lives of Domestic Workers by providing them with essential skills, job placement opportunities, advocacy, and financial inclusion.
