Our network

Member spotlight

Children Unite works in partnership with organisations to protect child domestic workers from exploitation and abuse and promote their rights world-wide. They do this in three ways:

  • Running research and advocacy projects in partnership with organisations working directly with child domestic workers that give opportunities for children to identify their needs and advocate for their rights.
  • Establishing a technical advice service to increase the capacity of organisations currently assisting child domestic workers to expand their reach and/or improve their advocacy and services.
  • Creating an international community of activists who take action to support the campaigns of child domestic workers across the globe advocating for their rights.
