Many HIV positive LGBTIs in Cambodia have few opportunities to earn their livelihood. One option is to work in prostitution. Sex work is illegal in Cambodia and regular police ‘cleans’ the city from prostitution, often with brute force. Clients are sometimes abusive too. In addition, sex work is not conducive to health.
To offer HIV positive LGBTI sex workers a chance to get other work experience, Untenu wants to provide them in the future with work experience places. One get a chance to learn to generate an income in a different way. Wherever possible we work together with similar initiatives in Cambodia.
