Let's protect LGBTQI Kenyans!

Article 26 of the Kenyan constitution states that: " Every person has the right to life". This does not omit the LGBTQI community. The LGBTQI persons have the right to life, and we should have a zero tolerance on hate.

Sex Worker's Rights Protection

The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) is one of the world's major human rights treaties. The convention was created in 1979 by the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW), the principal global intergovernmental body exclusively dedicated to the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women.

Comprehensive Sexuality Education!

Comprehensive Sexuality Education is crucial for promoting gender equality. By equipping young people with tools, they need to make informed decisions about their sexual and reproductive health. Let's help break down gender stereotypes and promote equality.

What Our Members Say



KESWA has elevated my status in the community. Whenever people in my community view me, they acknowledge that sex work is indeed work. I am getting the chance to change the narrative about sex work.




KESWA has helped me identify with my community better and even get to bond more with my colleagues. I would urge more sex workers to join KESWA.
