Renewing Hope …


There are around 150,000 prostitutes working in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia's capital city.

74% of them are estimated to be HIV+.

Nearly every girl working in a bar in Addis is a prostitute.
Young, attractive girls can earn Birr 100 (£6.00/$8.68) a trick but older women working in the slums charge as little as Birr 5 (£0.30/$0.43).

A prostitute’s career path is always down hill.

Ellilta-Women at Risk’s ultimate aim is for every woman to leave prostitution and live a fulfilled life with self‐respect and dignity.

Over 90% of women (360+) who have passed through E-WAR's twelve months rehabilitation programme have succeeded in permanently leaving prostitution and reintegrating into society
