Domestic Workers Organise For Their Rights

Persatuan Pekerja Rumah Tangga Indonesia Migran (PERTIMIG) and Asosasyon ng mga Makabayang Manggagawang Pilipino Overseas (AMMPO) are two NGOs that work very closely together with the aim of organizing migrant domestic workers in Malaysia. They focus on various issues such as social security, minimum wage, paid leaves, etc. We speak to some of the key people behind these organisations.
