About Activity

ACTIVITY OVERVIEW

 

Tasdeeq is a Safe Pakistan Welfare Trust driven initiative for the Poverty Alleviation of Domestic Workers & Blue Collar laborers. 

 

Present Challenges: Hiring a Domestic Servant

 

  • Blind Hiring: Hiring a domestic servant or a worker these days is akin to walking blindly into a dark alley.
  • Background check: None. Neither Citizenship nor Criminal
  • No Registration with Law Enforcement Agencies: with Police or Housing Societies (eg. DHA)
  • References: Very Weak or No References. No verification of Work History. No independent way of verifying their previous work history.
  • Record Keeping: Households have bad record keeping. Six months old? A year? Two years old record?
  • Weakest Link: Part-time help is the weakest link in the Security Paradigm
    • No Record of Part-time help (Electricians, Plumbers, Technicians, Painters, etc). Maybe just a phone number which could be on anyone’s name.
    •  No record of labor who came to manage a social event, such as dinner or  birthday party.

The Domestic servants/workers & Blue Collar Laborers come from among the poorest and marginalized sections of the society. This class is characterized by the following:

  • Unskilled to semi-skilled
  • Marginalized
  • No Formal education
  • No Assets or Savings
  • Large families and large number of kids
  • An accident or a missed salary can push these people into abject poverty or the criminal world.
  • Labor Mobility within the country. No legal bar to work anywhere in the country.

  • No Fee - Electronic Registration of Workers (part-time & full-time)
