Sexual Minority Tolerance by Local Leaders

 

As it has been realized over the years Local Administrative structures prove to be very effective in the dissemination of strategies and policies especially to the grassroots based communities.

It is in this light that Human Rights First Rwanda Association undertook the initiative of informing local leaders on the sexual minority tolerance.

Customarily such tendencies are considered to be deviant but with shifting trends globally the local populace were enlightened through engaging their leaders.

These leaders were seen to be very resourceful  especially in reshaping the mindsets of people living in the rural areas erasing the mentality of sexual minority stigma.
