It is estimated that more girls are employed as domestic workers than in any other form of child labor. They work extremely long hours and have a wide range of responsibilities such as cooking, cleaning, shopping and caring for small children. Because the girls work within private households they are extremely vulnerable to physical, mental and sexual abuse. Many have no chance to attend school.
