BBC Africa Eye has taken a look into the ordeal Ugandan young women who leave their homes in search of jobs as domestic workers in neighbouring country, Kenya.

BBC reporter Nancy Kacungira has been leading the investigation in why these women leave their homes and villages near Uganda’s border to seek a better life in Kenya; a dream that almost never comes true for majority of the girls.
A charity in Kenya is calling for the introduction of laws to protect domestic workers, commonly referred to as housegirls, to ensure their safety.
