KATHMANDU:

A two-day workshop titled ‘Towards securer lives: Advocacy for social protection for home-based workers in South Asia’ concluded on Tuesday with a resolution to work for the welfare of domestic workers.

Om Thapaliya, national coordinator of the Homenet Nepal, an international non-governmental organisation, said: “There are two million home-based workers in Nepal. Among them, 70 per cent live in villages and the rest are working in the cities.”

“The objective of the workshop is to highlight vulnerabilities of the home-based workers as well as the need for their social security to develop an approach to design social security,” he said.
