NightLight began to address the lack of opportunity for women trapped in Bangkok’s sex trade by providing them with a viable alternative means for supporting themselves. NightLight quickly grew into two branches: NightLight Design, Co. Ltd, the registered jewelry business offering holistic employment, and NightLight Foundation, the non-profit branch focusing on holistic intervention for women, families and communities affected by the global sex industry.
NightLight’s presence was established in the US under the name "NightLight Ministry." Teams in LA and Atlanta began reaching out to women in the sex industry and walking alongside them toward restoration. The LA location also functioned as an administrative headquarters for the US and as the North American shipping and distribution center for NightLight Design jewelry. Programming in LA and Atlanta ranged from outreach, to restorative services, to prevention work in at-risk neighborhoods.
NightLight launched its Missouri branch. This branch reaches out to women in the sex industry in the Southwest Missouri region and beyond, and provides restorative services for individuals who have been trafficked or sexually exploited.
NightLight’s administrative operations in LA were moved to Missouri. The LA branch was closed, and Missouri became the administrative hub for NightLight in the US.
NightLight’s Atlanta branch transitioned to the Atlanta Dreamcenter. This transition brought together complementary programming, passions, and expertise to multiply the impact of anti-trafficking and prevention work in the city of Atlanta.
NightLight now consists of its Bangkok and Missouri locations. Bangkok remains the founding location, and the primary location for NightLight’s founder/CEO Annie Dieselberg. Missouri remains the administrative headquarters for NightLight International, as well as a hub for outreach and restoration programming.
