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

Solution

30 leaders from most unheard communities engaged in learning and sharing to bring out their unheard voices and transforms these into useful knowledge that can inform policies, services and livelihood that meet their evolving needs and capacities

Long-Term Impact

The dialogue will be a take-off point to form a national decision-making platform for communities to bring out and unify unheard voices and ensure that their evolving needs and capacities are integrated into policies and service delivery
