Challenge

Members of the Tanzanian LGBTQ community face many challenges to leading safe, happy, and fulfilling lives. We face arrest, imprisonment, loss of employment, disowning by our families, denial of access to health services, expulsion from school, and physical attacks. This is compounded by the anti-LGBTQ legislation that results in severe persecution for our community members. Investing your time, energy, and capital in LGBTQ rights will help our community overcome these social and legal hurdles

Solution

This project supports our vision of creating a world where LGBTQ people can thrive free from the limitations of gender identity and sex orientation oppressions. Your Donations Will: 1. Cover General & Administrative costs 2. Cover special projects costs 3. Cover advocacy campaign costs 4. Provide emergency services to the LGBTQ in need: such as temporary shelter, legal aid, relocation and access to mental health services. 5. Will cover research and training costs

Long-Term Impact

Your donations to this project will build a strong, vibrant future for the LGBTQ community, meeting the needs, advancing the rights, and celebrating the lives of Gay, Lesbians, bisexual and Transgender people and communities in Tanzania
