      The name Rejesha is derived from the Swahili word ‘kurejesha’ which means to restore or to return.

Founded in 2019, our purpose is to restore hope and dignity to women and girls working as sex workers in Nairobi’s red-light district and where possible, help those wishing to exit the industry through training and access to alternative job opportunities. Sex work is NOT a choice. Women and girls in sex work are often poor, marginalised and vulnerable and driven to sex work by desperation and lack of alternative economic opportunities.  9 out of 10 women we have met are single mothers driven by poverty and joblessness.



Street Outreach

Every other Saturday evening, a group of dedicated volunteers reach out to female sex workers on the streets of Nairobi.

Exit Sex Work Solutions

We provide job skills training and mental health support to women and girls who want to explore alternative work options out of the sex industry.
