THE STORY:

Please donate NOW and help us keep the Urban Light Center open to provide a safe place for boys victims of sex trafficking to find the shelter, love and support they need! The sex trafficking of boys, some as young as 9, is a reality in the Northern Thai city of Chiang Mai. Despite the direness of the situation, trafficked boys remain one of the most underserved populations in Thailand. Urban Light, the only NGO of its kind dedicated exclusively to helping boys, is changing the reality of these boys — offering them shelter, a daily hot meal they can rely on, medical testing, counseling, English and Thai classes, art relief and many other preventative and rehabilitative services – all from within the walls of its center. Only a couple of blocks from Chiang Mai’s red light district, Urban Light runs a four-story drop-in center. There the boys can have a hot, healthy meal served on the first floor every single day, they can participate in art relief classes on the center’s roof, they can get medical and counselling appointments, and they can browse the internet at the center’s computer room or simply take a nap on the center’s comfy couches. The boys treat the center as their home. They know they can count on the center’s doctor to see them when ill, and, when they're ready, they know they can talk to one of the many counselors on staff at the center to start their re-training to exit the sex trade altogether. In the center boys can find a refuge from the life they have been forced to lead outside its walls. The rent for the entire center is only $4,000 for six months – but the reality of limited funding means that we need to ask for YOUR help to pay the center’s rent to make sure that the boys can continue to count on Urban Light’s community center. Donate NOW to help pay the 6 month rent of the four-story Urban Light Center in Chiang Mai, Thailand. THANK YOU!
