Women’s Organisation Network for Human Rights Advocacy (WONETHA) an NGO that advocates for health and human rights of sex workers in Uganda recently rolled out 26 of their members as graduands after completing an adult education course. The 26 sex workers graduation in different disciplines under the FALU program on 23rd August 2017.
“There was a literacy gap within the sex workers community- many of these women could barely write their names. Some of them could not express themselves which made their advocacy very difficult. This program was therefore put in place to pass on the much needed formal education to WONETHA members. Even though we are sex workers, we need these skills for survival in this competitive world,” Ms. Natukunda explained.
