RAM has been one of the most required, genuine and rightly administered social platform on the web. Asawari has done a splendid task of collating and connecting like-minded women and given them a voice and a shoulder at the same time. The platform has a great scope of growth in terms of reach, content and scale. Wish you all the best to champion this cause of modern society.
I am a social worker at VODYA NGO since 22 years, and a school counselor since 12 years..so I fully appreciate your efforts in giving these working maid dignity to work, and also the clients ( for want of a better word) a relationship where they can pay and get home service as per their requirement. There is blatant exploitation from BOTH sides, and there is no law to deal with it. I am 57 years old, and ever since I can remember there has been this ever present issue of finding a stable responsible help for the house. You have taken a great initiative, and I have found this forum very useful as when one of my maids absconded, i found on this forum that she has done this before and it lessened my pain!. The way some of the women who have been stealing in houses have been caught, and the new initiative in tying up with Unnati to provide reliable help is truely noteworthy. Thanks!
I have been part of this group for sometime. What I like about about RAM is their ethic towards the group, the way they work and help people regarding domestic help. The group managed to help many people in identifying right help as well as caution many against fraud agents. Domestic help is something we all are desperate for and it has become a necessity for each household. RAM is working towards helping mankind and I think that’s the biggest help one can do. It always give immense satisfaction when a domestic help is employed through this group. I just love their new thoughts and ideas of getting underprivileged people into employment without being exploited. My best wishes with RAM, they are here to stay and make a difference in the society.
Conceptualized in 2011, initiated as a Facebook group for Gurgaon, India, after trickling into 5 more cities Mumbai, Bangalore (obviously), Kolkata, Chennai and Pune Refer-a-Maid takes its humble first step into creating a Platform to help you find the right Domestic Help. We are all parents, children, spouses, siblings and while we are all of this, we are also Primary Caregivers for our young, elderly and Home managers. In India, building the right eco-system for your home is the biggest challenge. We are not saying we can change it. But we aspire to. Today Refer-a-Maid has Facebook Groups for 6 major cities where day in and day out we help each other.
So who are we? From referring maids we have gone to offering each other help for all Domestic Helpers. And all of it amounts to being able to get our #GharKaKaam (House-hold work) done. So, does it matter who we are? Take the first step and join us in creating an equal partnership platform. We assure you all the data that you provide will not be used for any commercial purposes. Let us give, before we take. Let us offer other members of our community an opportunity to hire through trust and relationships rather than mindless hiring.
