Share the story of the founder and what inspired the founder to start this project
The idea of starting the project of uniting sex workers around the campus in association was initiated after that one of students on his way to home from the campus met 2 sex workers, and they call him asking money to have sex with them, after having sex he was infected by HIV, after 2 years, he narrated the story his colleagues(medical students), they came by the idea of uniting those sex workers by helping them to find another way of surviving rather than doing prostitution, through MEDSAR and DANISH YOUTH COUNCIL(DUF), the association ABAYIMEJEGUHINDUKA “who are willing to change” was initiated;
The implementation of the idea has been successful due to the cross-link between University medical students and sex workers;
In fact, We are all youth (sexually active ,mostly unmarried), easy to interact( positively or negatively) and positively influence them ( sex workers and medical Students) moreover we are trained in medical field, their rate of HIV infection is 70% against 3 % general population where we belong, at unfortunately, the fact that those sex workers live around the campus, their clients are mostly university students.
Based on our success, we want to expand the project activities both in services and area of working hence by reaching more sex workers.
