Buy a safe house for Refugee Trans Initiative

Donativo protegido
The Refugee Trans Initiative are a vital organisation supporting trans refugees in Kenya. Like anyone else, the people being supported by the Refugee Trans Initiative just want to be left in peace to get on with their lives. But because the initiative don’t own their own home, it’s a real struggle to provide their 11 residents the security and stability they’d like to. Due to transphobia from landlords and harassment from neighbours, they’ve had to move 3 times in the past year alone.

“Early last month we had a meeting with our landlady and one of the issues she raised was of neighbours complaining about the kind of people we have at the house - their dress code, walking style and speech expression. The landlady said that she saw one of us and was wondering why a man will want to dress like a woman. After the meeting we thought we had come into a conclusion, but a few days after she sent the agent to issue us an eviction notice. This move has left us in dilemma since most of the residents are victims of trauma brought about by transphobic attacks and isolation, some have also experienced stigma based on their HIV status.”

If they owned their own safe house, the Refugee Trans Initiative would be able offer a safer and more sustainable home for their residents. One where they are able to dress how they wish without fear of an unexpected visit from the landlord. A place from which to build a community, to heal, to create artwork. You can help to build this safe community by donating to the Refugee Trans Initiative’s housing fund.
