Democratic Republic of Congo
Location: Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo
Partner: Bana ya Kivuvu
Women working as prostitutes in the poorest districts of Kinshasa endure misery, poverty and abuse every day. Aged 18 to 40, they have little education and few skills. Selling their bodies is a matter of survival. They must be with 10 men a day just to earn enough to feed themselves. These women need love, hope and kindness - a life they deserve.Donate

Imagine if someone believed in us and gave us a chance. We could develop vital skills, start up a business, learn to love ourselves. With the backing of people who care, we could put prostitution behind us, for good.
