Amount of grant approved (£) : 870Year of grant : 2019

A group of female sex workers sought help from TDT to find a route out of their profession by starting up a hair salon. Most of them are living with HIV in extremely vulnerable circumstances and struggling to raise children. Living a non-official existence meant local council support was necessary to obtain IDs and TDT local Rep Wilhard Titus was instrumental in establishing their CBO and implementing the necessary governance. Mama Halifa, the leader of the group is an admirable lady, struggling to do the best for her two school age boys in the most desperate of conditions.
