We're Shining Brighter!
IT ALL STARTED WITH A CHICKEN FARM,
some faith, and a big dream...
It all started with a small chicken farm in Wakiso, Uganda and has led to a proven, comprehensive program that helps survivors heal, transform, and be empowered. Our holistic, transformational program provides wellness services, vocational education, and life skills workshops, for 20 survivors of Commercial Sex Exploitation (CSE) each year.
A PATH TOWARD FREEDOM
We walk alongside the young women, who come through our doors at the 10,000 Lights Women's Centre (10KLWC), in Kampala, Uganda, as they become whole, independent, hopeful and joy filled women.
Our new programming, provides enhanced tools for program participants to become fully autonomous, as they work through their trauma, take responsibility for their health and education and learn a trade. Right now, we have 21 women, some as young as 17 years old, enrolled in the 2022-23 class - but we only have enough funds to take us into 2023, but not to complete the year.

for each woman enrolled at 10KLWC!
