Project Manager - Childcare for Women Workers in Informal Employment
Workers in informal employment as users of childcare services remain a missing piece in the discussions around care services. Childcare workers, often women and informally employed, continue to take care of other’s children while leaving their own behind. Provision of childcare services that meet the needs of women workers, can significantly impact the well-being of children and the economic outcomes for women.
