About this project

Every person working in prostitution is different. They all have their own stories and needs. Some want to be left alone. Some need support from other people. We want to encounter them respectfully to find out what their need is. We don’t want to interfere, but merely offer them our help, unpacking their need when encountered by it.  We also engage in different spheres of our society through education and awareness. As well we network, partner and collaborate with others involved.

Everybody needs something. Some need medical care. Some need or want education. Some need someone they can talk to. Everyone deserves autonomy and equality of opportunity. But there is so much more. We want to make sure that women in prostitution have a better chance to reach those needs.

We want to offer support in getting people more and greater coping skills to face and overcome the threats before them. Our goal is that they are empowered and can live self-determined lives.

To cope well with difficult situations, stable social contacts are vital. One example of this, the smallest and most vital unit of society, is the family. Children raised in unstable homes have many disadvantages and obstacles in life. Where the smallest unit lacks, we as a society have an obligation to help fill the gaps. No one out grows the need for family. Everyone is worthy of loving relationships and a space to belong. Everyone should have the right and opportunity to be included in society, even at its smallest unit. Unfortunately, women in prostitution are often stigmatized and excluded from society. We want to ensure that they have the same chances to participate in all spheres of our society like everyone else. That is why Inclusion is so vital. Because everyone deserves a place to belong!
