Charis Tiwala is a Christian charity offering support and assistance to anyone who is working in the sex industry in Hertfordshire.
Our vision is to see a society where everyone is valued, treated with dignity and able to live a fulfilling life; without the danger of being trafficked or sexually exploited.
We are committed to working alongside other organisations to help end sexual exploitation and human trafficking, and aid the restoration of those who have been affected and traumatised within the sex industry.
Charis is a faith-based charity but not faith biased; Charis works equally with people of all faiths and none.
“Charis Tiwala” is the official, registered charitable name for “Charis”.
“Charis” is an ancient Greek word meaning 'grace or the inner beauty of honour, courage, kindness and generosity of spirit'.
“Tiwala” is Filipino for 'trust'; we have used this to honour some of the Filipino women that we have worked with.
