The Drop-In Center is a unique program bidding to improve the livelihood of commercial sex workers by addressing the economical and psychological problems they face. It was a place where commercial sex workers and many others could rest, relax and receive different treats like manicures and pedicures.

The Youth Hot Spot was another corner where young people discussed issues such as a stigma free world and human rights.
