Who We Are
Sisonke, meaning “Togetherness” is a movement formed by sex workers for sex workers. The organisation started after sex workers grew tired of being abused, isolated and suffering human rights violations. It was officially launched in the Western Cape, 2003 and has since established offices in six provinces: Western Cape, Eastern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal, Gauteng, Limpopo and North West.
Sisonke has membership all over South Africa and endeavors to set up offices in all nine provinces in the near future. Currently having a head office in Observatory, Cape Town, Sisonke has a staff complement of more than 30 employees nationally and continues to grow.
