The domestic help project

In spite of being so intimately involved in our lives, the domestic help is one of the most neglected working class. There are about 4.2 million domesticworkers in the country and a majority of them are below the age of 30. Due to lack of any structured rights; thousands of women have to move directly from being young children to adults with tons of responsibilities. In the process, they somehow end up skipping their youth. Underage marriages, domesticabuse, lack of healthcare are just some of the issues they face every day.

This is a group of women that has been photographed over a period of few weeks. They were also given a camera, which they used to document their own lives.
