KENASVIT affiliates celebrated International Street Vendors Day by launching a massive clean- up campaign. Over a hundred informal workers and traders cleaned up the streets and their trading areas. They also took the opportunity to bring awareness to their demands and bring awareness of their plight with local authorities.
StreetNet International is an alliance of street vendors. It was launched in Durban, South Africa, in November 2002.
Membership-based organizations (unions, co-operatives or associations) directly organizing street vendors, market vendors and/or hawkers among their members, are entitled to affiliate to StreetNet International.
The aim of StreetNet is to promote the exchange of information and ideas on critical issues facing street vendors, market vendors and hawkers (i.e. mobile vendors) and on practical organizing and advocacy strategies
