Member Spotlight: Bar Hostess Empowerment Support Programme

The mission of the Bar Hostess Empowerment Support Programme (BHESP) is to influence policy and facilitate provision of quality health services, human rights awareness, legal services and economic empowerment for sex workers, women having sex with women, women using drugs and bar hostesses in Kenya. It serves as a common voice for these vulnerable populations in efforts to reduce stigma and discrimination.

Network Spotlights are short profile articles focusing on members of the Global Legal Empowerment Network. Spotlight articles use case studies and ‘key lessons’ to provide useful insights into the work of other network members. Whether you are working in the same country, with similar issues or want to understand new legal empowerment approaches, the Network Spotlight is a useful learning resource.
