10,000 Lights Women's Center, Kampala, Uganda:
A partnership with Daughter's of Freedom - Uganda.
Our funding primarily supports the 10,000 Lights Women's Centre (10KLWC) in Kampala, Uganda. The center was jointly founded by Amilia's Light and Daughters Of Freedom - Uganda. (DOFU). Our Empowerment Program for survivors of CSE, is funded by Amilia's Light, a United States (501(c)3 non-profit organization. It is licensed by the Uganda NGO Bureau, under DOFU, an NGO that rescues young women affected or at risk from commercial sex exploitation and human trafficking.
Over 100 young women have benefitted from the program, since inception in early 2016. The program began as a small busines with on-the-job training for survivors of CSE. We have evolved and expanded into what is now a comprehensive healing and learning center that is doing inspiring work to help survivors heal their trauma, transform their lives and become empowered women living free.
