Women Helping Women Out of Prostitution in Sierra Leone
« on: January 26, 2018, 05:49:29 AM »

In Sierra Leone, as elsewhere, commercial sex work is still stigmatized. Sex workers there say they face assault and routine intimidation by police, clients and others. Local activists are working to provide greater opportunity and protection for women in the sex trade.

On the outskirts of Freetown, Mariatu Sesay runs a small roadside cafe on the outskirts of Freetown. But it is more than a place to get a cold drink or a warm meal.

Sesay spends much of her time training any sex trade worker who wants to learn how to cook and run a small business.

Sesay says she has helped over 40 women get out of the sex industry.

“I have a passion for this job … since I was around 7 years old … I used to see plenty of women doing sex work, they used to come in our compound. They’d wash there, leave their things there,” Sesay said. “At times, I saw how the beach boys used to beat them for money.”
