Domestic child labour is one of the worst forms of child labor and thus children working below the minimum age of employment should be completely banned. It is mostly observed that girl- child is preferred more as a domestic help which leads to more exploitation and abuse making it a gender based issue. This population usually goes unaccounted, remains invisible and unheard. Therefore, this group needs more attention, awareness and advocacy not just from elimination aspect but also to give them as well as the ‘young workers’ i.e. those who are in the permissible age to work (14/15-18 years) a platform to voice out any adversities they face in their life.
