5 Gender Equality

- Residential Home Care For Girls

Light for All works with the local government and other NGOs to provide basic needs, education, and psycho-social interventions to sponsored girls, who experienced physical, sexual, and/or domestic violence. We aim at fighting gender-based violence and domestic abuse.


Through such interventions, the sponsored girls are empowered and can become leaders in their own community and regularly conduct outreach activities, street education, and life coaching to other youth in the community.

- Women Empowerment

Women engagement, empowerment, and behavior change are the core and backbone of what Light for All is doing. Since its establishment, and through its trained community mobilizers, the organization managed to reach more than 80 women.

We provide different training sessions, role plays, group activities, and community-based assessment exercises and activities, to change norms and behaviors, improve self-esteem, introduce women to effective habits, and empower them to challenge domestic and gender-based violence.

- Income-Generating Activities

Light for All trains women on different skills and encourage them to use these skills in producing attractive products that they can sell to the community members in their neighborhoods to generate income. Among the skills learned are cooking, baking, handicrafts, photography, and video/photo editing. We aim at empowering youth through vocational training. In addition, trained ladies are encouraged to save the profit and/or use it to fulfill their personal needs. More than 30 women engaged in this activity since its start in 2020. Since the pandemic started in 2020, with many men losing their sources of income, Light for All has worked closely with the heads of households of 10 families to generate income by providing them with bikes for goods delivery and transportation. Moreover, we provided part-time jobs.
