Creating Healthier and Inclusive Communities for Young People (Philippines)

 

Young people from sexual and gender minorities living in rural areas suffer harassment, physical and verbal bullying and abuse from peers and family in addition to the wider challenges such as unemployment and poverty.

We aim to bring young LGBTQI+ persons to build their capacities through leadership, mentorship and knowledge sharing. This will help them to take the lead in organising community engagements.

The interventions will be both physical and virtual, and the wider aim is to create a youth movement in the Philippines led by young people that sparks conversations and progress around health, fitness, wellbeing, and leadership.
