Human Rights of Sexual Minorities in, Zimbwabe and South Africa
The LGTB project is all about promoting and protecting human rights of sexual minorities in Zimbabwe and South Africa.
The LGTB project started in January 2014 and will end in December 2017. It is managed by local Oxfam country offices and implemented in collaboration with five local partners: Voice of the Voiceless (VOVO) and the Sexual Rights Centre (SRC) in Zimbabwe and Triangle Project (TP) and The Inner Circle (TIC) in South Africa.
The project has the overall objective to support the rights of sexual minorities in these countries by improving approaches through knowledge sharing, and providing robust models for related programmes globally. Although the context in the three countries is very different, the project partners have also a lot in common. The project facilitates linking and learning, for instance with regards to creating safe spaces, physical and digital security issues, hate crime, the need for advocacy for LGTB rights, etc.
