Hello, ,
I hope this finds you in good moods with family and friends. Let me take this opportunity on the behalf of our organization to introduce ourselves. We are a Gay group comprised of individuals from diverse backgrounds and attained various technical skills from academic institutions. We identified a problem early in schools and our homesteads of being discriminated and exerted to domestic violence in private and public institutions. Due to that situation we analyzed in Uganda, after attaining higher education we decided to formulate an organization aimed at addressing the guy community affairs and fighting for our rights. We are also Ugandans with a right to share our values and benefits from the common resources of the country, but because we are Gay and that's what we want and believe in, we face routinely collective domestic violence and discrimination by various public and private institutions.

We understand that we are among the minority groups in Uganda, but we think and believe that, that's what we are. We are hoping to reach out to all Gay communities in Uganda, schools, trade centers and higher academic institutions addressing our values and opportunities to build confidence into ourselves so that we can compete on a leveled group with the majority for socio-economic opportunities in Uganda. Also we want to establish dialogues and meetings with the responsible stakeholders like the Uganda Central Government so that the expected Anti Guy Bills is not passed because it denies us our human rights.

However much, we want to accomplished all these tasks, fighting for our rights, we are stagnated and held back by the limited resources at our disposal at a moment. So we really need help and backup from the international boards and concerned individuals like you. Hence, we will be very grateful and humbled when our call is answered.

Thank you very much for your time and we are waiting anxiously to hear from you.
