With the new Convention due to be adopted in June 1999, the project aimed to challenge the Philippine government's commitment to the new ILO Convention. The project was funded by Oxfam and Anti-Slavery, implemented together with Visayan Forum, a non-government organization working on migrant child labour issues. This video produced by Anti-Slavery as part of its campaign on child domestic workers in the Philippines, has led to the drafting of a law which will protect child domestic workers.
