SWEAT, a non-profit organization in Cape Town, South Africa, was established in the 1990s to provide safer sex education for adult sex workers. Since its founding SWEAT has developed as a leading voice for sex worker advocacy, human rights defense and mobilization in Africa. SWEAT has generated a more accurate picture of sex work in Cape Town and has supported the development of the sex worker lead movement group Sisonke. It collaborates with the Women’s Legal Centre (WLC) to use legal mechanisms to advocate against the human rights abuses sex workers face.
