Today on the 10th January 11, 2020, women who have been doing prostitution and those who were affected by HIV from City of Kigali, were given certificates after being trained by Natinal Association for Supporting People living with HIV (ANSP+) , this project was sponsored by UN WOMEN. Trainings started from May to December 2019. Some of those former sex workers said that they are hiring people.

ANSP+ coordinator Mukasekuru Deborah said that it is not their choice for those who decide to be prostitutes, some become female sex workers because of family issues, orphanage or poverty. They were supported by ANSP+ through trainings of tailoring and handcrafting. Deborah requested them to teach those who didn’t get the chance of being trained in order to move from such shameful career.

“Your dignity comes from money that you make because once you started earning money everyone respects you. Now the efforts that you had during training should guide you by going and give supports to the rests of you all around the city through the groups that you’re going to be given, go and train them also and start the journey of self-development.” Deborah said

Not only did the project supported them, it also participated in National Strategy for Transformation where it created jobs and decreased the level of insecurity by removing female sex workers from streets and it also decreased the level of poverty. Janviere Mukantwali from UN WOMEN (which supported this project) said more about it.

“By few number of female sex workers considering those who are in need, we participated in some government’s policies like creating jobs and without you, this policy couldn’t be achieved.” Janviere said

With happiness trainees appreciated ANSP+ and UN WOMEN for thinking about them and remove them from the streets and prostitution where they had no future, and now they are entrepreneurs. “We are going to help others by giving them skills we’ve got from here, and warn them to stop prostitution.” They said

ANSP+/UN WOMEN supported 20 beneficiaries from Musanze District where on 8th January 2020 they were given their certificates while 45 from the City of Kigali got theirs today on the 10 January.
