The Centre for Domestic Training and Development (CDTD)

CDTDThe Centre for Domestic Training and Development (CDTD) is a resource centre for information, training and advice for domestic workers in Kenya. It was established in 2001 with the mandate of equipping unskilled women and prospective domestic workers from vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds with transitional skills for survival and employment. CDTD offers courses in labour relations and rights, life skills, entrepreneurship education, housekeeping, laundry, childcare, food production and service, literacy and continuing education, and HIV/AIDS education. The organisation currently has six domestic workers’ training centres and shelters in Nairobi, and plans to open more soon. Besides education and training, CDTD provides other services including industrial attachment, guidance and counselling, and job placement and follow up. The organisation is affiliated with the Kenya Union of Domestic, Hotels, Education, Institutions, Hospitals and Allied Workers, a trade union that represents various categories of workers including domestic workers.
