Challenge

There are currently 18,000 children who are affected by commercial sexual exploitation in Uganda with the majority falling into the 14-17 age bracket. (Uganda Youth Development Youth link 2011) A vast number of girls are at risk due to poverty & parental neglect as they are trafficked from rural to urban areas. The project will rehabilitate 200 child sex workers in Soroti district to enrol and stay in school through a combination of educational, behavioural, psychosocial and legal interventions

Solution

CHAWOA will identify, rehabilitate and send child sex workers to school or train them in life skills and income generating activities. They will access counselling and continuous psycho-social and peer support by champions and examples of successes in rehabilitation. Basic scholastic materials, books and uniforms will be provided. Those with STDs/ HIV infection will be sign posted for specialised service. There will be legal support to provide justice to the victims.

Long-Term Impact

The project will take 200 child sex workers off the streets, educate and skill them to develop their capacity and make a positive sustainable contribution to their communities. The community peer support networks formed will reach out to the community to reduce the influx into the sex trade in Soroti. The peer networks will also become advise centres for victims of commercial child sex, and spear head behavior change through counselling and peer support.
