Services for the LGBTQI+ community and their families.
Sensitisation for communities
Communities that are experiencing homophobic violence can contact us to come and teach their community about sexual and gender diversity, while also expanding their knowledge about the law in South Africa
We work with a local safe house for abused women and children, and this is an inclusive space that welcomes lesbians. The safe house is a place for abused women and children to find accommodation and meals when they escape an abusive environment.
Sensitisation for schools
Schools have often experienced homophobic and transphobic bullying, leaving LGBTI learners with little protection due to the biases of learners, teachers and parents. Inclusive schools educate the whole school community and address misconceptions on sexual and gender diversity, gain a deeper understanding and create a school that is safer for all learners to fully access their education and pave the way to a better future.
