Sex workers in Kyrgyzstan are suffering from daily violence, extortion, blackmail and persecution by the intolerant-minded part of society and those law enforcement officers who use their authority to violate the law.
Sex workers’ children are suffering from the fact that they are not permitted to go to schools and kindergartens, because many sex workers are forced to be in the city without a residence permit, and because their children cannot go to where they are humiliated and insulted.
Sex workers in Kyrgyzstan support their elderly parents, who cannot survive on the pensions they receive from the state.
If the administrative punishment is introduced, their situation will deteriorate even more.
Sign the petition and stop criminalization of sex work in Kyrgyzstan!
