HomeNet South Asia Trust (HNSA) is a robust and representative network of home-based worker organisations across South Asia. A membership-based organisation, the Network is made of up of leading trade unions, producer companies and cooperatives, community-based organisations, country-level networks and rights-based CSOs from eight countries in the region. Together, HNSA represents over 1.2 million worker voices, 95% of which are women.
Home-based workers are a unique category of informal sector workers who produce goods or/and provide services from in and around their homes. Across South Asia, home-based work is highly feminized. Women home-based workers are a critical labour force and their immense contributions fuel industry and build economies. Yet, home-based workers are not recognised as workers and their access to labour rights, decent livelihoods and decent working conditions remain elusive.
Conceived at a historic summit that saw the presence of government heads, leading labour organisations, and civil society actors, HNSA is committed to bringing voice and visibility to vulnerable women home-based workers, advocating for their recognition as workers and for their inclusion in their policies, and ensuring their right to decent work. The Network, since its inception in 2000, has becoming the leading voice for women home-based workers in South Asia and its initiatives empower women workers, helping them improve their lives and livelihoods.
