BENEFITING: URBAN LIGHT
Our aim is to fundraise $11070 for the health and outreach branch of UrbanLight, providing hundreds of boys with the education and health care they need to prosper. We plan to have a goal for each of our fundraisers from 2015-2016, that will be dedicated to one of the following health items:
Medical Check-Up $85 (100) = $850
HIV Testing $11 (100) = $110
Pharmacy visit $14 (100) = $1400
Emergency Care $142 (10) = $1420
Outreach Kit $6 (300) = $1800
Health Kit $6 (300) = $1800
Clinic Day $285 (10) = $2850
Education Workshop $114 (10) = $1140
We will personally be flying to Thailand in January 2017 to perform outreach in the Chiang Mai streets with the kits we create through our fundraising, as well as on-site education workshops, and more!
Urban Light is a grassroots organization made up of a community of individuals dedicated to making noise regarding boys who are victims of trafficking and exploitation. Based in Chiang Mai, Thailand, the Urban Light Youth Center rebuilds, restores & empowers the lives of boys who work in the red light district by providing education + health services + housing & emergency care. Urban Light's mission is to improve the lives of boys at-risk of exploitation and trafficking by fostering personal development, increasing access to services, and creating a safe and nurturing environment to restore and empower them to grow and seek new opportunities by helping them to create a life free of sexual exploitation.
The Urban Light Youth Center (ULYC) is located just a few blocks from Chiang Mai's Red Light District. The Center is a place where boy's, ages 14-24, can seek shelter and refuge from the many harsh realities that life on the street offers. Urban Light is made-up of a team that works 24-hours a day to empower our boys with to live healthy, happy and safe lives by providing immediate assistance surrounding education, health services, housing and emergency care. The UrbanLight center has expanded from a handful of boys in 2009 to servicing hundreds of boys today!
