About the Company
Our Mission: NightLight is an international organization compelled by love to reach out to, rescue, and restore all those who are negatively impacted by sex trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation. Our vision is to offer intervention to sexually exploited women and children, to enable them to discover their dignity, and to provide a program of holistic transformation, empowering them to live and work in their community. NightLight operates in both Bangkok, Thailand and Missouri, USA.
Our Team: NightLight is a faith-based organization. In Thailand, our staff team is comprised of local Thai staff and international staff. Our international staff are responsible for mobilizing a team of financial partners to pray and give for their personal ministry.
