everybody deserves a place to belong.


We believe that everybody deserves a place to belong.

Unfortunately people working in prostitution have been stigmatized for a very long time. This stigmatization has led to exclusion which can be a heavy burden that brings a lot of risks and disadvantages.

We believe that no person should be excluded or stigmatized for what they do. We believe that people should have an equal opportunity to be members of society without stigma.

That is why we exist!


Parakaleo is an old greek word meaning: “to call to one's side” or “to encourage”. We want to come alongside and encourage individuals working in prostitution.
