ousemaidforyou.com is a social enterprise that aims to create employment opportunities for the domestic workers. With the right blend of technology and people management, we intend to revolutionize this unorganized industry. We work on latest technology to create easy user interface for our clients and at the same time our team works with regional NGOs on the field to spread awareness and education among the domestic workers. We ensure that pre placement induction and training is provided to the workers so that they fit the lifestyle and mannerism of our clients.
It all started when Rathi, consistently scrapped time from her rather packed schedules working for a private airliner, and invested the time she could manage into meeting and entertaining people from underprivileged and neglected sections of our society. She observed a void in the professional arena, which when bridged, can uplift the lives of those neglected and likewise, fulfill the ever growing demand for domestic helpers in not just dual income groups and nuclear families but also to effectively assist single parents and senior citizens.
The HMFY community conducts workshops in different areas; registers domestic helpers, trains and upgrades their skills, and creates a portfolio for them. Their profiles from on our databases are matched as per the client’s requirement. When a green signal is established virtually, a face to face meeting is arranged where the shortlisted candidate and the client get to know each other before confirming the deal. Our objective is to establish a professionally reliable setup that provides a premium and personalized search for domestic assistants/helpers. With the motivation to actualize her vision Rathi along with her husband, Prateek, launched housemaidforyou.com on 31st July, 2013.
The real world is unforgiving for most domestic assistants/helpers. You can expect a huge number of them to be oppressed, ill-treated, socially and physical harassed; yet, not a single voice speaks effectively for them. Our prime mission is to safeguard the rights of domestic helpers. People should know their rights; they are capable enough to protect themselves. Literacy is all it takes to resolve against most social evils in the society.
Our unique model for domestic assistance provides seamless stability and accountability from our domestic assistants/helpers, and as well from the clients. This is also an attempt to revolutionize and reestablish this rather highly unorganized sector. We consistently associate and work with regional NGOs that directly connect with domestic helpers to spread awareness amongst them, and as well educate them. Henceforth, we’ve built an abled workforce trained to understand and conceive the plight of working class families.
Our services are technologically empowered from end to end enabling our clients to avail domestic services by merely swiping on and/or pushing a few button. We firmly believe in professional responsibility owing to which we ensure that our domestic helpers are briefed thoroughly to blend into the lifestyle and mannerism of our clients well before their placement.
