This short promotional video was made for the #MyFairHome campaign. The campaign is an initiative from the International Domestic Workers Federation (IDWF) and aims to improve the working conditions of domestic workers by reaching out to their employers. It encourages them to personally take a pledge to commit to upholding the rights of domestic workers in their own homes.
