Filipinos are the face of domestic work all around the world. More girls and women leave from the Philippines to find jobs as maids or nannies than from any other country.
But when they show up for their first day of work, many find out they've been deceived. Locked inside the homes of strangers, their passports taken away, often beaten and sexually abused, Filipino girls as young as 9 years old are caught in the nightmare of modern slavery.
For the first time ever, there's a global standard to protect domestic workers, the ILO Convention on Domestic Workers.
It only needs one more country's support to become operative. The Philippines can be that country - and can lead the global fight to end slavery.
Right now, the Philippines Senate is considering a vote on this new standard.
Ask the Philippines Senate to support the legislation and we'll personally deliver your letters of support from all over the world.
