Welcome to AWAC Uganda!
The Alliance of Women Advocating for Change (AWAC) is an umbrella network for grassroot female sex worker led-organizations in Uganda. Established in 2015 by the champions of the female sex worker movement to give visibility; promote meaningful involvement and collective organizing of rural & peri-urban Female Sex Workers (FSWs), especially those operating in hard to reach areas such as slum areas, landing sites, transit routes and boarder areas to strengthen a unified, vibrant, national, and sustainable FSW led movement Uganda.
AWAC is committed to delivering effective and excellent integrated HIV/TB and SRH quality service to FSWs including prevention of Gender Based Violence (GBV) in hard to reach areas such as slums, landing sites, transit routes and boarder areas. To achieve this AWAC developed her innovative models as explained and illustrated below;
