The Pambansang Kalipunan ng mga Manggagawang Impormal sa Pilipinas or PATAMABA is a national network of homebased and other informal workers defending and advancing the collective interests primarily of home-based workers, who are predominantly women and who are generally not covered by the protective mantle of the Labor Code of the Philippines. It spearheaded the formation of Homenet Philippines, a broad coalition composed of 27 membership-based organizations and NGOs with an approximate 65,000 members that push for social protection for all and the passage of the Magna Carta of Workers in the Informal Economy (MACWIE) bill among others. PATAMABA is currently a member of NEDA Social Development Cluster Sub-Committee on Social Protection at the national and regional levels as one of the representatives of the CSOs.

PATAMABA is a grassroot membership-based organization founded in 1991 run and managed predominantly by women homebased workers. Starting as an Adhoc Committee of 29 homebased workers from nine provinces in 1989, PATAMABA‟s individual membership has reached a total of around 19,000; 98% of whom are women, between 18 and 75 years of age and are organized into 300 chapters in 34 provinces located in 12 regions. Of these, 4,102 are subcontracted workers, 14,986 are self-employed and 1,667 are a combination of both. Apart from homebased workers, it has 11affiliate –organizations composed of vendors, small transport operators of tricycle/pedicab and bancas, project-based construction workers, personal service workers (beauticians, barbers, laundry persons) and the youth (youth advocates and working youth) in the ranks of its membership. Members are engaged in social solidarity economy enterprises, networking with various government and non-government agencies (both local, national and international), community housing, capacity building and skills training (training cum production), social protection, and food and health services.
