Homenet South East Asia

HomeNet Southeast Asia (HomeNet SEA) was founded to empower homebased workers in the subregion. Since its formalization as a network in 1997, the various country HomeNets have been engaged in relentless advocacy work to make homebased and other workers in the informal economy visible on the policy map.

Homebased workers in Indonesia, Philippines, and Thailand (and later joined by Laos and Cambodia), majority of them women, were the first to form their networks in the subregion. They later converged in HomeNet SEA for greater visibility in national as well as regional policy advocacy towards social protection, occupational safety and health, gender-responsive participatory governance, fair trade and solidarity economy and improved legislation for more responsive policies and programs. These initiatives are meant to extend the labor rights and standards, to which formal workers are entitled, to informal workers (most employed women are in the informal economy), thereby bridging the formal/informal as well as the gender divide.

Homenet Southeast Asia approved membership of two organizations into its network-CraftLink of Viet Nam and eHomemakers of Malaysia during the SRC meeting in Jogjakarta on October 27, 2010. They are the sixth and seventh members of HNSEA who are actively involved in the same advocacy of promoting gender equality and social protection to homebased workers especially women.
