New skills, dignity for domestic workers

New skills, dignity for domestic workers
- Kali Devi walks every day in the heat to make it to class on time at 2 pm. For the next three hours, she learns work that she has been doing for years but is for the first time seeing in a new light. A domestic worker, who does mopping and cleaning in households around Sangam Vihar, Kali Devi is part of a group of 15 women who are undergoing a two-month-long training programme conducted by NGO Prayas, which is one of the organisations tasked for the project by Domestic Workers Sector Skill Council. The course ends with a certificate recognized by the Government of India. The affiliated training organizations then works towards placement of these skilled workers.

Domestic Workers Sector Skill Council (DWSSC) is a non-profit organization, under the aegis of National Skill Development Corporation of the ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship. The primary role of the council is to fix national standards for domestic work, work out a curriculum and give certification.
