Great news from our program in Uganda

You may remember Rita’s story from last year.

...A young, traumatized shy, woman, raised by her aunt, whose only option was to sell herself for sex to pay for her school fees and essential items, like pens, a notebook and sanitary products.

A Life Transformed

Thanks to our supporters, Rita transformed her life at the Empowerment Program, where she gained confidence, learned the retail business, how to cut hair, and how to interact.

She saved money and earned a business administration diploma, now she has a bigger role at the 10,000 Lights Womens Business Center, our social enterprise in Uganda.

There is Now a Bright Future for Rita

She is ready to do more. She is self assured, and eager to learn, and most important, has begun to dream. ​​​“​​I would like to study for a six month certificate in Banking/Accounting or even study to get a degree​.” She even envisions starting her own shop.

We’re Dreaming Big for Rita

We believe in Rita! ...With her courage and determination, and our continued support, we believe her dreams can become reality.

You can make a difference in the lives of young women like Rita who are survivors of human trafficking.

There is HOPE. Rita is a shining example of how your support transforms a life.
