Rights not Rescue Programme
In 2019, ESWA initiated its flagship programme ‘Rights, not Rescue: Sex Work, Migration, Exploitation and Trafficking', This project aimed to empower migrant sex workers to fight trafficking and exploitation in the sex industry and strengthen ESWA’s advocacy on issues relating to migration, exploitation and trafficking. Through this programme, ESWA (then ICRSE) was able to provide financial and technical support to 12 sex workers’ rights organisations which developed national activities to tackle exploitation and amplify the voices of migrant sex workers.
