Mission Statement

WISTLE is a non-profit that offers free, 1:1 English lessons to migrant sex workers living and working in the US. We strive to build a community among migrant women, while increasing their English language skills and confidence.


At WISTLE, we understand that knowing English (while living in the United States) can greatly reduce social isolation, foster community, and increase the confidence of those who wish to make themselves heard. We believe that, in offering free 1:1 English lessons to migrant sex workers, we can help contribute to this positive process. While our work by no means solves the complex issues linked to migration and the sex industry, we hope that equipping our students with English skills may lead to broader opportunities, the ability to stand up for one’s self, avoid being taken advantage of, and engender a sense of empowerment in knowing that they can navigate their environment with confidence and conviction.
