Dear sir/madam.

We are a Human Rights organization from Rwanda(Human Rights First Rwanda Association) that has been actively engaged in defending the rights of sexual minorities in Rwanda and the region at large.

We are very much credited with the campaign that lead to Decriminalize LGBTI'S in the new Rwandan penal code.

Our concern still is the stigma and discrimination they continue to face as result of their sexual orientation. And lack of access to health facilities , justice system and freedom of association . And now that most African states have stated enacting strict criminal laws targeting sexual minorities it has become a threat even to the achievements we have managed to secure in Rwanda

A lot of Advocacy and Human Rights education initiatives are needed to support sexual minorities in Rwanda and the great lakes region.

It is against this background that today we have initiated a project that Upholds sexual minority rights in the great lakes

individuals and organizations can contribute through the below link and receive a tax deduction from Global Giving.
