Kenyan sex workers celebrate their rights

Kenyan sex workers, drawn from different cities, converged at Tononoka Social Hall in the Coastal town of Mombasa to celebrate the March 3rd International Sex Workers Rights Day. This day is celebrated since 2001 when over 25,000 sex workers gathered in India for a sex worker festival. It has been designated to highlight the human rights challenges, success and failures facing sex workers.

The organizers of the event, the Kenya Sex Workers Alliance (KESWA), in collaboration with the Bar Hostess Empowerment and Support Programme (BHESP), hailed the event as a milestone for sex workers in Kenya who face challenges in their profession.

Peninah Mwangi, the Executive Director of BHESP said, ‘This event was meant to bring together sex workers from Kenya to share their experiences and seek a way forward. Our theme was access to health care as part of the broader specter of human rights we want sex workers to be accorded as persons. In addition, this event is the first to bring together representatives of sex workers in Kenya. We are very happy with the turnout.’
