WA-WA Kenya aims to stop 'sex for fish' practices by empowering women and teenage girls around lake Victoria. Our main goal is to address social inequalities between men and women which is resulting in a lack of recognition of their rights, very restricted access to opportunities and to power: this results in difficulties to major economic activities thus forced 'sex for fish' is the alternative left for them.
We envisage a county free from ‘sex for fish’ where men and women contributes towards Sustainable Development Goals evenly
Empowering women and teenage girls to become self sustaining through a comprehensive training to acquire vocational and entrepreneurship skills so that they work hand in hand with men as equal citizens in society.
Through training in key areas such as fishing, fish farming and boat building, WA-WA is able to equip beneficiaries with proper techniques, methods and ideas they need to start up and manage a sustainable livelihood around the fisher communities.
