Our Mission & Vision

Project 189 is an organization aiming to protect, promote and improve the rights of domestic workers in the Middle East.

Our vision is for all domestic workers to be equal and free from all forms of exploitation, discrimination and abuse and in which all states recognize in law and in practice domestic work as work under international labour and human rights law.

Our mission is to strengthen labour and human rights law in the Middle East through advocacy, awareness, empowerment and the promotion of Convention 189 (Convention concerning decent work for domestic workers).

Project 189 works on the promotion of the rights of domestic workers in the Middle East so all their rights are respected; where they can live in freedom, free from fear, violence and abuse. We want to help build strong institutions that assure through an appropriate legal frame, practices and policies that effectively ensure, promote and protect the fundamental rights of domestic workers.
