Awareness Guide for Female Domestic Workers in Lebanon: What should I know?

AiW undertook an awareness-raising campaign that entailed developing, printing, and distributing brochures to domestic workers in Lebanon.

With a grant from the Foundation of Open Society Institute, AiW developed and printed the brochure for the campaign. The brochure was written in English to address migrant workers from the Philippines, and immediately translated into three languages, Amharic (Ethiopia), Nepali (Nepal), and Sinhala (Sri Lanka). A total of 24,000 brochures were printed.


Since the printing process has been finalized in December 2010, AiW has been working on disseminating the brochure to migrant domestic workers in Lebanon.
