Happy Family Youth Uganda

Formed in April 2016, Happy Family Youth Uganda is a non profit organization actively working to ensure the safety of the LGBTQIA+ community of Uganda. Being one of the strictest countries against sexual diversity, both on a governmental and societal level, the LGBTQIA+ population in Uganda finds itself on an extremely fragile situation and faces dangerous persecution and discrimination. Happy Family Youth addresses the issue by focusing on rescuing and improving the quality of life of the community, carrying out their work on different fronts, such as: health advocacy, Humans rights awareness, economic empowerment and providing shelter for homeless LGBT persons.
