Recently I was on an assignment by Oxfam international for a campaign under “we care”. This campaign is driven towards reinventing unpaid domestic work or care work whereby it should be a collective effort in a home characterized by all family members sharing the domestic activities evenly amongst themselves other than sticking to the usual norm of having women and girls doing all the home activities.
