Strengthening the Movement of Home-based Workers
March, 2016

Strengthening the Movement of Home-based WorkersHome-based workers are the most invisible of all informal workers, but they may also be the most numerous, with an estimated population of over 100 million around the world. The majority are women. In order to improve their situation they need to gain visibility and recognition as workers and important economic contributors. They need a voice in forums affecting their work and lives, from local to global.


As home-based workers we are facing the same problems. Key challenges are lack of infrastructure, social welfare and no markets. The economy is going down. We have to become strong and work together.

- Lucy Nyambura, Bega Kwa Bega Self Help Group, Nairobi, Kenya; speaking in Delhi 2015
