Preventing migrant worker abuse

Indonesia is facing increasing pressure to protect the rights of its migrant workers who go abroad to work as domestic helpers.

The International Labour Organisation hopes to focus world attention on the plight of migrant domestic workers from Asia.

In some cases these workers are forced to work in terrible conditions.

Estimates show there are 53 million domestic workers, most of them women, who are employed around the world.

As the BBC's Karishma Vaswani reports from Jakarta, Indonesian workers going abroad are being given special training.
