Newly established, young NGO is motivated to work in strategic directions marked below.
As mentioned commercial sex worker established the NGO and are involved in all levels of its governance and management, who are in charge of strategically directing and managing the organisational activites.
The main challenges related to CSW in Georgia is high CSW-related stigma and discrimination that comes from clients, police, the population in general. Even if CSW were legal, the attitude from society is so negative that it would definitely need strong awareness raising on the one hand and challenging the legal systems in line with attitude changes on the other. Another challenge is the access to services CSWs have no equal access to services especially SRHR.
