In Tajikistan life is quite challenging for sex workers, particularly for those living with HIV. But many do not have of a passport or any official registration and, therefore, have no access to treatment.
And some do not have a good place to stay and experience malnutrition, while you need good food when on ART (antiretroviral therapy).
I am very happy with my job at Dignity, because I want to support people like myself.
This work really gives me the feeling that I am needed.
My name is Inna, I am 30 years old and I live in Dushanbe, Tajikistan.
Sex workers, women and men, and LGBT people are welcome in Dignity’s drop-in centre.We offer temporary, safe accommodation, hot food, and a shower.Another challenge is the administrative prosecution. We are often forced to pay money to the militia, and if we refuse, we have to sit in their premises for hours.They humiliate and beat us, constantly saying that we are prostitutes and nobody will help us.And it is a place to share troubles and find solutions together. Here, we feel open and free, and we can learn from each other.
