We have achieved progress by establishing 16 community-basedorganizations (CBOs) and 2 non-governmental organizations(NGOs) dedicated to supporting sex workers. Through these efforts, we have successfully trained and empowered 311 leaders.

Our organization and networks are expanding and becoming more robust, allowing us to extend our outreach to a total of 9,635 sex workers from 2019until now.
