Protection & Risk Assessment Tool, Staff Policy, and Partnership Agreements for Shelter Management
CENTRE FOR DOMESTIC TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT (CDTD)
- Organizational background:
Centre For Domestic Training & Development (CDTD) was founded in 2001 with a vision to employ as many domestic workers with proper home care management skills. CDTD strived to professionalize and understand the challenges that faced this industry, key among them being lack of dignity, respect, and fair pay besides the stigma associated with domestic work. CDTD began a program in 2001 under the Domestic Support Services, which initially served 5 girls from Nairobi-Kibera.
Sensitive to the needs of Kenyan women, the founder was burdened to change these perennial sufferings by establishing a Domestic Workers Training Centre registered as an NGO in 2003. Since then, CDTD has adopted several “sea-changing” impact programs to address Domestic Worker’s plight, such as the formation of the National Shelters Network (NSN), Counter Trafficking-In Persons (CTIP), Sexual & Gender-Based Violence (SGBV), and Domestic Workers Transformational Program (DWTP). To date, CDTD has transformed more than 10,000 domestic workers and remains a trailblazer in matters; of training, policy advocacy, employment, labor rights, sexual & gender-based violence rights, safe migration and counter trafficking-In persons.
