African Sex Worker Alliance (ASWA)

The African Sex Worker Alliance (ASWA) is a project housed at the Sex Worker Education & Advocacy Taskforce (SWEAT), an NGO based in Cape Town, South Africa. ASWA was formed to help bring an end to the human rights violations perpetrated against sex workers and to build in its place an enabling human rights environment in which sex workers enjoy the full scale of their rights. This includes being afforded equal protection of the law and opportunity to practice sex work without fear of prejudice in their communities.
