    About Iris Dignity

    We are a small group of missoniaries from the four corners of the world that have experienced the power of radical love and are compelled to share it, particularly with those on the streets in Nelspruit, Mpumalanga, South Africa.

    We started reaching out to the ladies on the street,  then God opened the doors to plant a church in the Brothel.  This was all in one week! Women and men started coming to hear the word of God.

  • Statement towards prostitution and role of Dignity

    Dignity believes that prostitution is dehumanising and exploitative. It brings harm to society, women, men and children. Dignity believes that society has to offer possibilities for every woman to generate an income other than prostituting herself. Dignity sees it’s role as being a voice for women trapped in prostitution and in giving support to women in prostitution and offering help where needed. This includes practical guidance and support in stepping out of prostitution as well as building up a new life.

    Dignity will work together with like-minded organizations and aims to collaborate against human trafficking and any exploitation within the sex-industry. Dignity will be a voice for victims and survivors of this trade

They know themselves that it is not realistic to think they can just step into another full time job ... more
