The Global Home Index’s main objective is to evaluate how the amount of work required to build and care for healthy, thriving home environments is understood and valued throughout the world. It also aims to raise awareness among survey participants about the value of their own work in the home as a contribution to human development.
The quantitative data for this international research project will be collected via online questionnaire and will be based on the results of theoretical and qualitative studies carried out in 37 countries.
The Global Home Index (GHI) is an initiative of Home Renaissance Foundation (HRF) whose purpose is to bring about change in our understanding of the professional dimension of the work in the home for a well-balanced society.
According to HRF: Domestic work is not merely a collection of services such as laundry, cleaning, and cooking. It is a values system in which science, art, psychology, culture, skills and an aptitude for management all play a part. Work in the home allows the individual to develop in his or her most intimate environment: the home and the relationships that flourish within it. Every individual needs this care whether they are children, elderly, adolescents or men and women with demanding and stressful professions.
Home Renaissance Foundation aims to promote and develop greater recognition of the importance of the work required to create a home which meets the fundamental needs of individual and family and its crucial role in creating a more humane society.
Therefore, Home Renaissance Foundation in collaboration with Strathmore University Centre for Tourism and Hospitality, welcomes you to participate in this Global Home Index research project which will allow you to examine the crucial relationships that you are developing in your own home.
The questionnaire only takes 15 minutes to complete. It will provide an assessment of how well your home is organized, how you are creating a home through excellent relationships with your loved ones and the quality of life you are enjoying at work and at home.
CTH looks forward to your private and confidential responses to the questionnaire, which is being used all over the world. The results obtained will give us a global vision on the topic of “The Home”.
