Through dynamic programming responsive to the needs of young people, they overcome barriers enabling them to have healthy and Self-sufficient lives. By expanding our Knowledge base, Advocacy, Strategic Partnerships and Enhancing Service Provision and Uptake we have made great strides, we have been objective in expanding and increasing by scope, information for young people and sex workers about HIV, human rights, sexual health, condom use, safer sex, and accessing health services. Expand by scope Information about HIV, STIs and condoms for clients and others involved in the sex industry such as establishment operators and staff, taxi drivers, police and local authorities. We have also expanded access to ‘prevention commodities’, including a variety of appropriate condoms, lubricants, medications, contraceptives, and food and water security; through partnerships. Moreover, we have also expanded access to sexual and reproductive health services encompassing diagnosis, treatment and care. We have also developed mechanisms to ensure and promote freedom from abuse, discrimination, and persecution. Importantly, we have expanded access to cultural, educational and community activities that can help Young Female Sex Workers realize their economic and personal goals. Finally yet importantly, we have endeavored to include sex workers in the design, research, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of policies and programs that affect their lives as well as building the capacity of communities and service providers to support all sex workers, including those living with HIV, to achieve their goals. We also work with communities to eliminate FGM in our villages.
