Challenge

Although Uganda is trying to protect the rights of girls and women, Crane Survey (2013) and UYDEL study (2011) established that 35,000 and 18,000 young girls and women respectively are engaged in commercial sex work. They are trafficked into this, or forced to join the trade because they cannot earn a living.This has many negative consequences, including high rates of HIV/AIDS (37% among commercial sex workers), backstreet abortions and mental health disorders. 100 bwaise slum girls will benefit

Solution

AFHI Uganda provides vocational skills in making leather craft shoes for the girls exploited by commercial sex.The girls are counseled to restore their hope and heal their minds,build their confidence to change behavior and trained in leather craft shoe making,marketing and enabled to start group businesses where they generate an income to survive. They are mentored to act as role models and act as community change agents to get off other girls from sex trade.

Long-Term Impact

The project will provide vocational skills to 100 slum girls exploited by commercial sex in making craft leather shoes, marketing,financial management,link them for market for their products which all will enable them establish group businesses,generate incomes,abdicate commercial sex and live life with dignity.
