International Vendors Day Commemorations
NAVUZ has applied to become an affiliate of the World Vendors Movement and Street-Net International, a global collection of street vendor organisations working towards the recognition and acceptance of vending as a legitimate economic enterprise.
The organisation joins the rest of the world in celebrating vending on the 14th of every November and the celebrations rationale derives from the fact that vendors are workers with a right to organisation, representation and social protection as other workers.
NAVUZ believes that vendors need central legislation, responsive governance and adequate social protection. NAVUZ uses this platform to amplify vendors’ voices for the legislative adoption of its Proposed STREET VENDORS (PROTECTION OF LIVELIHOODS) BILL, 2014 under the slogan ‘Legalise Vending.’
