Izwi Domestic Workers Alliance

Izwi Domestic Worker Alliance is a network of domestic workers in Johannesburg. We provide:

Information and advice on employment issues, and assistance with individual cases.

Training programmes, events, and social activities.

Collecting and sharing the stories and experiences of domestic workers.

Izwi was started by a group of domestic workers who wanted to change the way they are treated by employers, and by society in general.

In order to break down the isolation and vulnerability that domestic workers face, we are building a support network of individual workers, neighbourhood groups, and partner organisations. A steering committee, elected from amongst the members, oversees Izwi's growth and direction. Read on to see what Izwi has done so far.
