In addition, we have a counseling program on the street. We’ve held that program 8times total on the first Saturday of every month, and we were able to meet 377 sexual minority youth people .
There is one more program I’d like to introduce to you. It’s called “Rainbow navigation”. This program supports the youth who have left their home or who have plan to leave their home. A total of 11 youths participated in the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd sessions in 2017 ~ 2018. In the program, we tried to find ways to share difficulties, and support each others to live well as sexual minority youth.
We will continually work hard to make a shelter where we can provide food and shelter for 24 hours to lgbt+ youth in crisis. Thank you for all your support and love that you have sent. Please keep looking forward to see the better future what we are making together with you!
