ODYSSEY FROM STUDENT TO SEX WORKER: Baseline Survey turned Documentary (Supported by YETT)

This Documentary was produced in 2011- It was a result of a Baseline Survey:

Documenting The Experiences Of Women Engaging In Sex Work And Students At The University Of Zimbabwe Engaging In Transactional Sex: A Case Study Of Harare

( At the time TESHE was still operating under the name Youth Talk Zimbabwe Trust. )

The result was a documentary titled- Odyssey- From Student to Sex Worker.

Main outcome of the project: We recorded an outcry from sex workers about the brutality they face at the hands of the Police and lack of alternative means of a livelihood. We then used the DVD as a lobbying tool to encourage dialogue with relevant authorities to attempt to curb the prevalence of such instances and also interrogate alternative options of subsidizing their income.
