Who we are
We are part of Sisters Adoratrices, a global congregation of Sisters who have been caring for women involved in prostitution
and women who have been sexually exploited for over 165 years.
The Sisters’ mission is to provide the compassionate care that helps women flourish, freely and unconditionally, and rebuild confidence in themselves and trust in others.
The Sisters also promote women’s rights, advocating for a more just society in which women are treated with humanity, compassion, dignity and respect.
Their commitment is not one of merely providing services, but rather in walking alongside and accompanying women with gestures of love
that speak of dignity, hope and freedom.
The Sisters also defend women’s rights, promoting social transformation at the same time.
Rahab’s values of humanity, compassion, dignity and respect are inspired by the Christian faith-based mission of the Sisters.
These values are enriched and shared by many people of other faiths and none who work with and support us.
We embrace this diversity, and are committed to inclusiveness and respect of all people, irrespective of individual circumstances, gender,
sexual orientation, race, religion, beliefs, ability or age.
Rahab is one of the Sisters' 257 projects in 25 countries supporting women. Together we care for more than 9000 women each year.
The Sisters’ projects include safe homes, education, training and employment initiatives, centres for legal, women’s wellness and other support, prison
and street outreach, schools, therapeutic and residential communities, humanitarian interventions and much more.
