The LGBTIQ+ community across the region face varied challenges including criminalisation, lack of adequate legal protections and hostile public attitudes that can lead to widespread stigma and discrimination – such as discrimination in the workplace, bullying in schools and lack of access to essential healthcare services.


Social Entrepreneurship offers young people who identify as a being part of the LGBTI community a voice and empowers them to create jobs and provide solutions to the challenges their communities face. Diversity and inclusion are key to building a world where people can interact as equals and can feel proud of their identity.
