La Maison de Mélanie is known for its direct involvement with both victims of sexual exploitation and those close to these victims, their family and friends, who are secondary victims. La Maison de Mélanie is also called upon to provide training to university students and professionals alike, and to offer presentations aimed at raising awareness among those working in the field and among the general public. Further, thanks to the publication of our founder’s biography, we have direct contact with victims who identify with her and who recognize themselves in her story.
La Maison de Mélanie intervenes using an innovative and neutral approach: the organization does not take a position in the political debate on prostitution. Our mission is simply to provide direct and effective assistance those who are victims of human trafficking for the purpose of sexual exploitation.
The approach advocated by La Maison de Mélanie is to remain free of judgment, never discriminating against different types of prostitution. Our organization provides services to all women seeking help to end their sexual exploitation, and we provide that assistance without any prerequisites whatsoever.
