We are the Voice of Domestic Workers Song

As we celebrate International Domestic Workers Day, we share this song with all of you! Domestic workers are the backbone of many households, and their contributions often go unrecognized. Today, we honor their hard work, dedication, and resilience. Join us in our campaign: Time to Reinstate Rights of Migrant Domestic Workers!







The Pre-2012 Overseas Domestic Worker Visa ensured vital protections and freedoms:


  • Right to change employer without restrictions: Empowering workers to leave abusive or exploitative situations and seek better opportunities.


  • Right to renew the ODW Visa: Providing stability and security for domestic workers and their families.


  • Right to settlement: Allowing workers to build a future and integrate into their communities.


  • Right to British Citizenship: Offering a path to full participation in society and recognition of their valuable contributions.


Why These Rights Matter

Empowerment and Safety:

Allowing domestic workers the freedom to change employers without restrictions is crucial. It protects them from exploitation and abuse, giving them the power to seek better working conditions and respect.


Stability and Security:

The ability to renew the ODW Visa provides much-needed stability for domestic workers and their families. It ensures that they can continue to work and support their loved ones without the constant fear of losing their status.


Building a Future:

The right to settlement offers domestic workers the chance to lay down roots and become an integral part of their communities. It allows them to plan for the future, secure in the knowledge that they have a permanent place to call home.


Recognition and Inclusion:

Granting domestic workers a path to British citizenship acknowledges their contributions and allows them to fully participate in society. It is a recognition of their hard work and dedication, and it affirms their value in our communities.

Let’s work together to reinstate these vital rights and ensure that domestic workers receive the recognition and protections they deserve. Their resilience and dedication make a significant impact on our lives and our society. It's time to give back by advocating for their rights and standing in solidarity with them.

We are the Voice of Domestic Workers Lyrics

The voice of the unseen, the work we do in silence

In the homes of strangers, we navigate the violence

But in our unity, we find strength and resilience

We demand respect and justice with persistence

 

We stand together, in solidarity we rise

 

The voice of domestic workers, breaking the silence

Fighting for our rights, we won't stay in compliance

We are the backbone, of this society

Our voices will be heard, loud and clear for all to see

 

Through language lessons and support, we empower

Together we educate, protect and empower

We seek an end to discrimination and abuse

For a better future, we refuse to lose

 

United we stand, against all odds

 

The voice of domestic workers, breaking the silence

Fighting for our rights, we won't stay in compliance

We are the backbone, of this society

Our voices will be heard, loud and clear for all to see

 

The voice of domestic workers, breaking the silence

Fighting for our rights, we won't stay in compliance

We are the backbone, of this society

Our voices will be heard, loud and clear for all to see
