HIA Action Projects

Formal documentation of any employer-employee relationship is extremely important, as it creates a professional environment in which both parties are aware of their rights and obligations within the working relationship. Yet such formal documentation rarely exists in the case of domestic work in the Netherlands. Domestic work is a unique profession, as the employee is working exclusively within the private sphere of the employer. The private nature of this form of employment is often cited as one of the reasons why there is no clear formal working relationship between domestic workers and their employers in the Netherlands. This project aims to improve the working conditions of domestic workers in the Netherlands by raising awareness among employers.

After their fellowship programs, all Humanity in Action Fellows are obligated to plan and implement an Action Project—a hands-on initiative inspired by their fellowship experience. The Action Project is an opportunity for Fellows to apply the ideas that inspired them in their program to real-life issues in their home community or abroad. Action Projects may take many different forms, including community service, public advocacy, art projects, lectures, conferences and social entrepreneurship. We have featured some of our outstanding Action Projects by creating short, summary videos.
