Meet FEM Alliance Uganda – CRG SI Partner

Under the CRG-SI 2021-2023 Project, FEM Alliance Uganda will:

  • Develop an organizational safety, security and wellbeing plan;
  • Produce and disseminate a report on the implementation of trans-specific programming for HIV in Uganda.

FEM Alliance Uganda (FEMA) is a lesbian, bisexual, transgender and Queer women organization, which was established in 2012 by a group of trans and lesbians who felt that the needs of the growing LBT/Q community was not adequately represented by the few minority groups organizations in Uganda.

FEMA was formed with a clear mission of improving livelihood amongst the LBT/WSW community through education and impart communication skills to the members to enable them cope with changing times.

A lot of lesbians, bisexuals, transgender persons and women who have sex with women have been excluded in a number of interventions here in Uganda especially those who live in rural areas. Over the years, LBT/WSW have been harassed, cajoled, insulted and discriminated against.

The educational opportunities are few and so many are unemployed. Those who are educated at a higher level for getting jobs are also unemployed because of their sexual identity. They are isolated in many ways, thrown out from their families for their sexual preferences leading to drug and alcohol abuse, engaging in all different anti-social activity. FEMA comes in with the intention of changing this situation.
