A housekeeper who has a hard time keeping a house in the house will be given a new job.
This is a story that will keep you up at night.
Read moreThis is the first time a woman has been given a job to care for a family, which is a major development in the fields of housekeeping and child care.
“It is an important step forward for the empowerment of women in the country,” said Rakesh Bhargava, who leads the project at the Centre for Development Research (CDR), a think tank in Bengaluru.
“The idea is to give them a job and also give them an opportunity to make a difference in their lives.”
The CDR was established by a group of young women from the city to start the development of the initiative.
It has now hired 10 housekeepers for a project in the state of Kerala.
The CDR, an initiative of the Centre on Women’s Development, says that a family with two children will require about 1,500-2,000 people to manage them and keep them fed.
“We are asking women to work with one of the key tasks of housekeepers in a household: to take care of the home,” said Dr. Gyanpreet Saini, who heads the CDR.
The project is part of the efforts of the National Centre for Women, which has been working with the Centre to raise awareness about the issue of housemaids and to ensure that there is a place for women in its programs.
A report of the CDI project, entitled “Mamata Banjarao Jyoti, Namaste!
Namastakkaam”, is being prepared by CDR for the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment, which plans to start a household and child-care programme in the next few months.
The CDI is also working on a child-caring scheme in the city.
The government will start the programmes in January and the CDRs will start with housekeepers, the CDRC said in a statement.
This, however, does not mean that there will be jobs for them.
“There will be a need for them to be trained and their salaries will be paid,” Dr Sain, who is the CDRI’s project director, told HT.
The salaries of the women employed in the project will be fixed by the CDRS.
“This is part-time work,” said Bhargav.
“They will have to have a good knowledge of the basic skills of housework.”
There are currently over 3 lakh housemaid jobs across the country.
But there is no clear-cut definition of a “housekeeper” and no one knows what a housekeeper is.
It is not clear what constitutes a “home” and how much a family needs.
The women who work in the CDRF project will have a place to live, they will be trained to care and have their salaries paid.
In other words, a woman will have the right to a livelihood.
Dr Sain said the CDIRs work will help in developing the skills of women who do housekeeping.
“A housekeeper can be anything from a housewife to a maid or even a cleaner,” she said.
“And it is important for them that they know how to do it well.
They should also know about the needs of the family.”
The CDRs plans to employ over 10,000 women from all walks of life in Kerala by the end of the year.
The project is still in its infancy and Dr Sains team is trying to get the word out about the project.
She said the project is an extension of CDRs social justice initiatives.
“Our focus is on women’s empowerment and we are trying to provide them with the right opportunity to earn their livelihood,” she added.
