Our work does not fit within a short-term M&E indicator framework. Neither does it work within development parameters and framing of concepts that largely remain colonial, capitalist and neoliberal. We leverage our expertise with an inherent interest in thriving as a community of multifaceted, talented and diverse young people.
Human Rights + Sustainable Development
Indivisible + Interdependent
Ensuring that LGBTIQ+ youth are included in human rights standards and sustainable development commitments means individual rights are respected and no one is left behind.
What does this look like?
Intersectionality, Comprehensive Solutions & Multidisciplinary Approaches.
Communities curating affirmative, decolonized and dignified content.
Conversations that spark Creativity.
Creativity that sparks Change.
Collaborative Curiosity & Cultivating Care.
