We help women out of prostitution, pornography and trafficking for sexual purposes and into a functioning life.
Talita offers support and assistance to women who have been exploited in the sex trade. We work with prevention, outreach and rehabilitation, both in Sweden and abroad.
Our prevention work aims to prevent young girls from ending up in prostitution and pornography. Our outreach work involves seeking out people in the arenas where prostitution takes place and offering support. Our rehabilitative work enables women to leave the sex trade and become fully integrated into society. In Sweden, Talita operates two shelters with rehabilitation in Stockholm (Villa Talita and Lilla Talita) and a clinic.
Sanna berättelser om vägen ut ur prostitution
I boken får vi möta arton kvinnor som har varit i prostitution - och tagit sig ur den. Vi får en inblick i hur och varför de kom att bli en del av sexhandeln i Sverige, hur de hamnade på en gata, i en lägenhet eller i en sunkig källare och sålde sina kroppar. Men vi får också läsa om deras väg ut ur helvetet - och in i ett fungerande vardagsliv.
Det är också en berättelse om Talitas grundare som har dedikerat sina liv åt att åstadkomma en förändring för dessa kvinnor genom att driva föreningen Talita.
Skatteverket kräver sexhandelns offer på skatt. Men att utnyttjas i prostitution är inte ett jobb. På denna sida kan du deklarera ditt missnöje och kräva att regeringen tar sitt ansvar för att staten inte ska driva in skatt från prostitution.
In our presentation video, you can listen to women sharing their stories and Talita's founders describing how the work started and what we do today.
Some of the women who completed the program have chosen to be interviewed and their stories have been made into short films. Their names are redacted to protect their identities.
Talita's operations in Sweden and abroad are entirely dependent on the donations we receive from private individuals and various companies and foundations. We receive various operational support from, among others, the City of Stockholm, but the money we receive from the state and municipality is only a small part of our total needs. Your gifts make the big difference!

"I have seen the difference between women who have not received and those who have received rehabilitation and support from Talita. I have seen how this support has been life-changing on many levels. The staff at Talita really struggle to get these women back on their feet and they succeed."
"Talita is amazing! They are more flexible than an elite gymnast and yoga instructor combined!"
"For me and most of my clients, Talita is a happy place where they can find themselves, get the trauma treatment they need and be treated humanely and professionally. For them, it has simply been life-changing that they came to Talita. I am extremely grateful that they exist"
