UNESO in collaboration with Center for Health, Human rights and Development is implementing a 5 month project named ” A rapid response to address the legal and psychosocial impact of COVID-19 pandemic on female sex workers in Uganda”. The COVID-19 pandemic has turned into a multifaceted crisis, posing profound implications on fundamental human rights and during this crisis many sex workers rights are violated physically and emotionally. Nevertheless, as UNESO we are determined to continue advancing our mandate of empowering sex workers and advocating for sex workers right.
We have conducted a legal empowerment camp and a legal aid clinic aimed at Legal empowerment and mentorship of sex workers.
During the day, CEHURD provided legal assistance to sex workers and also empowered them on key aspects of human rights, social accountability and access to legal services.
