▶ Mickey MEJI founded in South Africa the abolitionist movement of women survivors of prostitution “KWANELE”.

▶ Having experienced prostitution for 9 years, she has especially campaigned with the sex work Lobby before becoming an abolitionist. 

▶ Today, she fights for the voices of the survivors (700) and their true wishes for their future.

▶  This abolitionist Movement encourages the penalization of customers.

Prostitution violates the right to human dignity and also threatens the right to life by reducing life expectancy and increasing exposure to violence that leads to murder.

Personalized support for employment of young graduates in a situation of discrimination.

Since its launch, the Association “NQT” has been implementing an operation aimed at encouraging the professional integration of young graduates, Bac + 3 and more (Bac + 4 and more for Ile-de-France, with experimentation Bac + 3 in QPV), under 30 years old, from underpriviledged social backgrounds or from deprived neighborhoods, thanks to a system of sponsorship by executives, assimilated and even experienced business leaders (advices on job search, resumes, letters of motivation, interviews, helps with the constitution of a network, etc.).

The Association NQT develops concrete actions that will accelerate the professional integration of these ambitious and deserving young persons and give all the same opportunities to access a permanent and qualified job.

NQT proposes to its employers and partners to ensure, in their actions, an approach to valorize equal opportunities. It is a simple and practical way to facilitate exchanges between young graduates and professionals.

=> The Association NTQ  has become a Member of the European Observatory for Non-Discrimination and Fundamental Rights.
