College for PUNANI Workers Officially Opened ...

Having realised that se_x workers lack information on their rights and are financially illiterate, a Bulawayo businesswoman has decided to educate them.

Providence Moyo has formed a trust called Devine Providence Foundation. So far, about 20 commercial se_x workers have joined the trust and they are receiving lessons on their se_xual rights and how to save up for a better future.

“In my interactions with the commercial se_x workers I have noted with concern that most of them don’t have information on their se_xual rights hence they are abused by clients,” she said.

So it’s now back to school for the working girls.

“As of now we have two modules. The first one focuses on se_xual rights and reproductive rights while the other module focuses on investment, financial literacy, sole trading skills and business management,” she said.

Her main objective is to empower the commercial se_x workers and not drive them off their trade. In separate interviews se_x workers expressed joy at the gesture.

“I’m HIV positive due to that I had lost hope in life. I was living life anyhow because I treated my status as a death sentence. However, after attending these lessons I’m now hopeful of a better life. I’m cautious of my reproductive health,” said Noma (not her real name).

Thembelihle Simango has been working for 12 years and there’s nothing to show for it.

“I have been making money from this trade but I failed to invest. I used to live as if there’s no tomorrow. But after attending these business lessons I have to change the way I use money and leave a legacy for my children,” she said. Prostitution is illegal in Zimbabwe but police can’t arrest women on charges of soliciting for se_x in the absence of men confirming they were offered the services for a fee.
