Since 2014, CHREAA has been actively involved in the implementation of projects focused on two key objectives: decriminalizing vagrancy offenses and promoting and protecting the rights of sex workers. These efforts have been made possible through the generous support of the Open Society Foundations (OSF), Open Society Initiative for Southern Africa (OSISA), and Southern African Litigation Centre (SALC).

The overarching goal of this initiative is to strengthen the protection of rights for marginalized communities and vulnerable groups, ultimately working towards the decriminalization or declassification of minor nuisance-related offenses in Malawi and the broader region. By advocating for legal reforms and raising awareness about the rights and needs of these communities, CHREAA aims to address the systemic barriers they face and foster a more inclusive and just society.
