Home-based Workers – A Baseline Study
Tailoring, embroidery, tie-and-dye, sujani (kaatha work) and carpet making are all done by women workers, who have little formal training and education. This makes all the difference as more than half of them depend on middlemen for work orders. HomeNet India and UN Women work together to protect the rights of women based at home. This is a baseline study of the initiative.
