Migrant domestic workers in Lebanon face widespread human rights violations and poor protection caused by the sponsorship system, among other violations, that transforms the status of migrant workers to victims of trafficking as well as by the weak Lebanese protection framework which renders migrant workers constantly at risk of abuse.
As the violations to their rights continue, ALEF aims at addressing several interrelated problems that can support a sustainable process towards minimizing human rights violations as it pertains to migrant workers and victims of trafficking.
