Recently, StreetNet interviewed street vendors in order to understand how its work concretely impacts their lives. Each vendor holds membership in one of the following StreetNet affiliate organizations: Cambodia’s IDEA, India’s SEWA, Liberia’s FEPTIWUL, and Rwanda’s SYTRIECI.
The vendors interviewed described just how much StreetNet and its affiliates’ work helps them and their families improve their economic and living conditions, build confidence, experience less workplace harassment and violence, access education, and contribute in meaningful leadership roles within their organizations and communities.
