Brighter Lights is our holiday season campaign to encourage you to be a "brighter light" and help us raise $10,000 so we all can do more in 2018 to help survivors of human trafficking.
The highlight of our holiday celebration is the annual Light The Night event in December. And you're invited. Please see the invitation below.
Would you please make a donation today? Thank you for your generous support.
Amilia's Light is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that empowers survivors of human trafficking in ways that foster their dignity and self-worth through opportunities to become self-sustaining. This is realized through education, training, and job opportunities. Currently, our major project is in Uganda. Locally, we help raise awareness aimed about the global epidemic of human trafficking.
We’re Celebrating The Success Of Our Young Women!
We are so proud of the young women - all survivors - who were the first to benefit from the new Empowerment Program in Kampala, Uganda.
They gained skills through mentoring, training, and vocational training, which enabled them to begin work and take on increasing leadership roles at the program’s social enterprise, "10,000 Lights Women’s Business Centre". Director, Miriam Enyaga writes, ”It's with great pleasure to share with you that the vision and purpose of this project has come to life."
Many of the girls are well on their way to self-sustainability. The program has equipped them to qualify for more challenging jobs, either part time, or full-time outside the Centre, and some are also able to attend university.

More Good News Is Coming Soon
"We are confident more lives will be impacted," Miriam adds. In fact, we'll soon share with you news of how more girls are entering the Empowerment Program.
Please join us for our annual Light The Night event on Saturday, December 9. It's our way of saying "thank you" for being one of Amilia's lights.
