What We Do : Fellowships

Activists Fellowship

There are many community leaders who are inspired and committed to bring about change, but they have not had the chance to develop their ideas and approaches. Further, grassroots activists are increasingly frustrated by the lack of focus on human rights and social entitlements and on overemphasis on narrow HIV service provisioning. We wish to address this issue by

  • Providing financial, emotional, social and intellectual support
  • Mentors who guide and support the project besides serving as sounding boards for ideas and offer psychosocial support
  • Provide a platform for emergent leaders among sexual minority and sex worker groups with vision and concreate ideas for bringing about social change
