Life in the urban center is generally not easy a journey to go through but it becomes a less bitter once there is someone that understands and goes through the very things you go through there with you just to give you a shoulder to lean on. With the objectives of: Advocacy ,Health (psychosocial and nutritional, sexual and referrals),safe housing, skills development, economic empowerment and helping illiterate women teach them English, Shadia feels this can be a less heavy journey for an LBQ woman refugee as she awaits her resettlement. We don’t have to be ashamed of who we are we only need to find ways of creating comfort between ourselves to be who we are.
FLBQR calls upon everybody ,every organization, every open minded individual in a position to donate to the cause below to help make a difference in this cold world we live in.
We request to fundraise $1600 for this course to help out as we look forward to grant writing and income generating through our skills development projects. A safe house or emergency shelter where LBQS would come together for skills development, counselling and group therapies, language education and also to get a roof over their heads and meals.
Below is an estimate on how this money will be spent.
Housing/ rent for 4month ksh 100000 @ ksh 25,000/= ($1000USD)
Food for 4 months ksh 40,000 @ ksh 10,000/= ($400USD)
