ASWA is currently undertaking a project dubbed “Sex Work and Labour Rights project”. The project’s methodology is interviews and a research to provide a situational analysis of sex workers and labour rights in four countries; Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania and South Sudan. The project will highlight on what needs to be done to better integrate the elements of decent work agenda into national frameworks for labour standards in each of the four countries. The findings of the projects will be used in advocacy and peer training on labour rights and social protection for sex workers in the four countries.
The project which is led by ASWA staff Rose Wanjiku trained participants from the four countries on how to generate advocacy strategy and plan on engaging key stakeholders on sex work and labour rights. It will also engage governments, policymakers, and advocates to actively pursue decriminalisation of sex work, including sex workers, clients and third parties.
