Over the past couple of years Mama Biashara has been working with commercial sex workers across Nairobi. Sex work is almost always a last resort - women with no education or training who have to leave home at about fourteen and support themselves frequently have no other real option. Mama Biashara will set them up in another business allowing them to leave the streets and the bars where, often, they are robbed, assaulted and raped by their clients.
If a woman wishes to stay in the business, then Mama Biashara will teach her how to do it more safely, better and more remuneratively. The workshops we do have been hugely successful in achieving this !
