Going Home: The Reintegration of Child Domestic Workers in Nepal

Dr Helen Baños Smith - CWISH, with support from Family for Every Child

This report documents a study of the reintegration of child domestic workers in Nepal. The research was carried out by a Nepali non-governmental organisation – CWISH – with the support of the international network Family for Every Child. This study is part of a larger three-country study, which examines the reintegration of street children in Mexico and children in residential care in Moldova. The overall aim is to identify successful elements in strategies to ensure the sustainable reintegration of children without parental care by examining the reintegration process from its initial preparatory stages through to after children have returned home (as defined in Box 1). For the research in Nepal this involved examining the reintegration of child domestic workers as supported by CWISH.
