Dignity Through Storytelling

One of the main challenges that women working in prostitution face is stigmatization. Society sees them as 'less than' because of the work that they do and this denies them their basic human rights. Yet even more unfortunate is when the women start to believe, embrace and define themselves by what society thinks and says about them. 

When the young women in prostitution join our program, they often have low self esteem and lack self confidence. In August we held an outdoor event where they learnt how to tell their stories with dignity. It was a beautiful session of being reminded that they are not defined by what the society thinks of them and that their dignity is an inherent gift that can never be taken away. This was the first time that some of them had ever shared their stories and the first time that they saw the beauty in those stories.

As we continue to provide a safe space for their transformation and empowerement, we thank our donors for supporting their healing journey and the pursuit of their dreams.
