Izwi Domestic Workers Alliance

Izwi is an alliance of domestic workers in the Johannesburg area. We educate workers in labour rights, facilitate case support for those who are mistreated, and use media and art to shift cultural biases. We work through an advice office, 11 neighbourhood groups, and active whats app platforms. Employed in isolation behind closed doors of private homes, domestic workers face widespread exploitation, forced to make a living off poverty wages and often marginalised by society.

Over the last two years, with only one employee and a lot of volunteers, we have built up a strong network of women who support and educate each other, and have helped hundreds of domestic workers resolve labour disputes, resulting in substantial financial payouts and better working conditions.
