Charis Tiwala is a Christian charity offering support and assistance to anyone affected by human trafficking or sexual exploitation within the sex industry in Hertfordshire.
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.
