Night Light Café is a safe space, where prostitutes from foreign countries can stop by every night between Wednesday and Thursday at 00-03 AM The café is a place, where our organization EXIST, contributes to a preventive effort for women that are victims of human trafficking. The primary group of interest of the café is the Nigerian women in Denmark that are working illegally as street prostitutes.
Outside of Denmark EXIST supports 10 safehouses in Nigeria with a related rehabilitation program, allowing women to return to life outside prostitution.
Night Light Café relies on a Christian set of values and view on human nature, but it is not a requirement to be religious as a volunteer. All volunteers are welcome no matter personal background, religion and political values. Most of the Nigerian women are Christian and perceives the church as a safe space for the night and in Denmark.
In the night café we talk to the women on their premises. It is not up to the volunteer to initiate conversations about traumatizing subjects, including talking to the women about their personal story and experiences with prostitution. As volunteers we meet the women with openness, care and friendliness and not as therapists or skilled personnel.
We expect that you:
