Celebrating International Home-Based Workers’ Day

On the occasion of International Home-Based Workers’ Day, we would like to congratulate all the home-based workers around the world for working under extremely poor conditions and earning an income; their contribution to the products used and consumed by us; and their contribution to the national economy and the GDP of the country. We would also like to recognize the contribution of our member organisations and many such membership-based organisations who are ensuring decent work for home-based workers.

International Home-Based Wokers’ Day marks the anniversary of the Kathmandu Declaration passed in the year 2000. The Declaration recommended all the countries to form a national policy for home-based workers.
