What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Majority of community groups such as people who inject drugs (PWID), people in prostitution (PIP) and the street youth are low literate, and due to the highly stigmatised nature of their conditions they fear those who are mandated to support them, they chose to maintain in their respective communities that provides punitive policies and interventions that does not transition them to better lives but furthering themselves into clandestine occupations that are even more risky and exploitative
How will this project solve this problem?
