Legality and security - live a life free of fear in Austria.

 
 
 

Most domestic workers (cleaners, nannies, nurses) in Austria are women with an immigrant background. Many of them work undocumented - this means: no legal certainty, no social security, no protection from exploitation.

 

We want to help these people attain legality and safety and enable them to lead self-determined, independent and fearless lives in Austria.
