WE HAVE FREEDOM, WE HAVE OPPORTUNITIES AND THEREFORE WE HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY
Tabea Oppliger, Founder
Out of a desire to expand efforts to assist with integration and occupational rehabilitation for a larger number of survivors, in 2021 launched the joint venture: "Education & Integration Program" in cooperation with the Ministry of Labor and Welfare.
OUR NAME IS
Hope Center is an Israeli NGO that helps survivors of prostitution in occupational rehabilitation and their integration into the labor market. The NGO was established in 2015 by Matthias and Tebea Oppliger, a Swiss couple who moved to Israel with their three children and established their vision in Tel Aviv: an association that helps integrate survivors of the prostitution into the world of employment.
This non-profit grew out of a deep personal concern about the increasing problems around human trafficking and the sexual commercial exploitation of women and men worldwide.
