SWEAT is at the cutting edge of sex worker advocacy, human rights defence and mobilisation in Africa.

SWEAT has determined the discussions on a legal adult sex work industry where sex work is acknowledged as work, and where sex workers have a strong voice, which informs and influences wider social debates. SWEAT has campaigned for the inclusion of sex workers as respected and valued members of society.

SWEAT’s core objective is for sex work to be decriminalised in South Africa.
