Support organisations

Since 2011, AINSW has been receiving extended support by the UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund to set up an office in Delhi and conduct programs benefiting the life of the sex workers and protecting their rights.

Sex workers are discriminated, unaccepted and are debarred from society. With a vision to bring in change and social acceptance, a group of sex workers organization and sex work support organization collaborated to commit to a strong cause under the name – National Network of Sex workers (NNSW). The principal ambition of this network was to echo the voice of the sex workers and to be loud enough to be heard by the people of the society. Over the years NNSW conducted numerous campaigns and movements to raise their concerns both at State and Regional levels. The organization earned its formal registration as the All India Network of Sex workers (AINSW).
