We are non-gender selective, 18 years above, young mothers, transgender commercial sex workers, LGBT persons. We educate them about their universal human rights and provide referrals. Our friends/partners are Transgender Equality Uganda, Ice Breakers Uganda, Sexual Minorities Uganda, Foundation for Transgender Women Living with HIV/AIDS in Uganda.
Much as we aren't 100% sex worker organisation, 30% of sex workers are on the secretariat. These help to forward to the board pressing issues about sex workers. Our total membership has at least 55% sex workers meaning that they are directly involved in decision making of the organisation.
Our sex workers are denied access to health. Many suffer from curable diseases/infections because there are no clinics that are friendly to their work. This is because sex work is illegal in Uganda. Being remotely located, more than 3/4 of our sex workers don't know their fundamental human rights and therfore cannot defend themselves incase they are attacked/abused. Many are arrested and detained by police without any clear charges. The police then demand for sex or a bribe from them so that they can be bailed out.
Education: We established a nursery and primary school which supports orphans and other vulnerable children in the rural areas. We have classes from nursery to primary three. We run an artisan apprenticeship programme where we identify most at risk youths especially young and single mothers/parents and train them in short skills of their choice in tailoring, hairdressing or carpentry.
Economic empowerment of women: We mobilise and train women in village savings. They self manage their groups of 15-30 members, save money on a weekly basis and members can borrow with low interest.
