Turning the Tables works for the personal and financial empowerment of women who are breaking out of the cycle of prostitution and sex trafficking. Thousands of young girls, boys, and women are caught up in prostitution in Israel.
Turning the Tables focuses on the vocational rehabilitation of the women, providing a comprehensive and supportive program that emphasizes two aspects – professional development and self-expression. Key to the organization is a multi-dimensional fashion studio based on the individual needs of the women ; this model is designed for replication in other cities. Since its registration as a nonprofit in 2011, hundreds of women have used the services of Turning the Tables.
The studios provide a venue for training – sewing and pattern-making, digital marketing, and business development – as well as a warm and multi-functional center for rehabilitation, learning about and claiming rights, and support in a range of areas of life.
