Resume:

Dette er det første projekt nogensinde målrettet trans personer i Malawi. Projektet vil skabe en trans bevægelse ved at uddanne trans aktivister i køn, menneskerettigheder og hiv/aids. Vi vil skabe støttegrupper for trans personer og udveksle erfaringer med danske trans aktivister. Dermed vil vi bidrage til opblomstringen af en reel trans bevægelse i Malawi. Samtidig vil vi uddanne sundhedspersonale i trans venlig og trans specifik behandling, og vi vil etablere et nationalt monitoreringssystem, der monitorerer menneskrettighedskrænkelser af LGBTI personer og lynhurtigt reagerer og adresserer diskrimination og ulovlige anholdelser.
