SWEEEP

We aim to empower sex workers by:

Encouraging them to explore, and voice, their own actualities, experiences, and protests using a human rights approach. We do this through direct engagement in workshops, public events and through a national toll free help line.

             

We build strong relationships with sex workers:

These relationships allows us to have direct access to information about sex workers experiences, needs and wants and keeps our work grounded and appropriate.

Our Services:

 

Access to trained sex worker peer educators who reach sex workers where they work and live on outreach. Peer educators are trained to offer basic human rights, health advice and can conduct basic screening on violence, drug and alcohol addiction as well as general psychosocial wellness.

 

Access to mobile health clinics.

We provide condoms and lubricant and promote safer sex practices.

 

 

Referrals to sex work friendly services.

We refer sex workers to clinic settings where we have established relationships. Where sex workers need help, a trained Peer Educator will accompany the sex worker to the service.

Legal advice and referrals for legal representation.

We partner with legal services like the Women’s Legal Centre that offer more in-depth legal counselling.


Psycho-social support including counselling through our 24-hour toll free Help Line which also operates a please-call-me service cost-free to the client.

 

Training and education on health, human rights and self-empowerment for sex workers which makes use of participatory methods and is embedded is a safe and non-judgmental space.

 

 

Support Groups for sex workers arranged around relevant themes.
