Access to Justice


Facilitated 40 training behavior change and communication workshops for 24 FSWs as peer educators from the Old Fadama and Railways communities of Greater Accra. Educated 503 female sex workers, 61 queen mothers, 115 other women, 106 male clients, 58 male brothel owners, and 110 others through peer education from trained 24 FSW peer educators. Produced and shared a participatory baseline, midline and end line reports into research knowledge regarding access to justice of levels of FSWs’ confidence in reporting abuse to the police and chiefs

Situation Problem

Female sex workers lack access to justice because of lack of information and knowledge about their rights as citizens. Due to the fear of victimization from law enforcers, they refuse or feel intimated to report abuses to the law enforcers.

Response Solution

Through peer education, female sex workers were educated on their rights and linked them to services. The project provided opportunities for female sex workers (FSWs) to access legal, social [housing and education], health, and economic services as well as security and protection from abuse and exercise their human rights as enshrined in national and international laws and the realities facing sex workers in Ghana.
