The Third World Movement Against the Exploitation of Women (TWMAEW) provides services to women and children who are survivors of the sex trade in the Philippines, helping them to create a better life for themselves. TWMAEW also advocate for long-term change by working with a network of NGOs, governments and the United Nations.
TWMAEW works with former prostitutes, victims of sex trafficking, incest, rape and domestic violence. Typically, victims have come from remote provinces or urban squatter areas with limited access to housing, clean water, education, medical care and other social services. The charity's support services include outreach work in sex tourism hotspots, medical assistance, drop-in centres which offer non-formal education and skills training, and both temporary and permanent residential housing.
TWMAEW reaches the most vulnerable women in the sex trade. This includes their outreach work in sex bars.
TMAEW provides vocational training and education programmes which enable women to move on into alternative careers and ways of making a living through.
