KESWA is the umbrella organisation of the Kenyan sex worker-led groups based in Nairobi. The organisations include: Health Options for Young Men on HIV, AIDS and STIs (HOYMAS), Bar Hostess Empowerment and Support Programme (BHESP), Warembo Sasa, Survivors (Busia), Coast Sex Workers Alliance (COSWA), Eldoret Sex Workers Alliance (ESWA), Kisumu Sex Workers Alliance (KISWA), Coast Hostess, Smart Ladies Nakuru, Laikipia Peer Educators, SWOP Ambassadors, EMAC, Sisters of Majengo, and Links to Smile.

KESWA’s campaigns include community outreach targeting sex workers not only in Nairobi but also in surrounding areas, including Thika, Naivasha, Kiambu and Murang’a. Additionally, KESWA has also established a community center, which provides HIV testing and education to sex workers, as well as creative spaces and counseling groups. 

Capacity strengthening of member organisations to a stage where they can get funding on their own and be independent as sex worker led-groups is one of the most important successes of KESWA
