Christine Namutebi, 21, lost her parents at the age of five, and was not able to stay in school. At the age of 18, she moved to Kampala, Uganda and started selling sex.

She is now a peer educator and supports other young women like her, who work on the street. Watch Christine’s story and find out how she learned to negotiate for safer sex through the support of the Uganda Link Up project. Watch the video below.
