Redefining our Journey 

The Alliance of Women Advocating for Change (AWAC)

AWAC is a feminist, umbrella network of grassroots Female Sex Worker (FSW) led groups, organizations and collectives in Uganda, established in 2015 led by FSWs to respond to FSWs’ comprehensive Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights (SRHR), and mental health needs, challenge the multiple facets of criminalization and stigmatization of sex workers, address the socio-economic deprivation, and shrinking civic space. AWAC’s mandate also extends to fast-tracking the sex workers’ contribution to the attainment of both the global and local development agendas such as, Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), and the Uganda National Development Plan.
