All members of Hoymas are male sex workers. 80% of Hoymas staff are male sex workers and board members.
Due to criminilisation of sex work in Kenya there are increased cases of violence experienced from either police, clients, the general public or even family members. There is also a huge challenge in accessing healthcare services due to stigma and discrimination.
The main focus of Hoymas is promotion and protection of human rights including police sensitisation, paralegal training, community training on human rights and advocacy for sex worker's rights etc. Community outreach including health talks, mobilisation etc., prevention, care and treatment, economic empowerment.
