After many years of hard work the Israeli government has made a bold decision and approved penalties for prostitution clients. With that Israel joins a small club of nations to criminalize procuring sex services; punishments include fines in the thousands that will grow for repeat offenses. The law includes a budget of 90 million shekels ($24 million) over three years and provides the first needed response for rehabilitation. This is where we believe our social business A.I.R. - kite.pride comes in. Positioned right in Tel Aviv, the epicenter of the happenings, we ensure alternatives for rehabilitation and protection for the victims and are now working on being included in this grant from the government as we have never received governmental funding for the last four consecutive years of labour - read the full article of the new law here.
