PASSION DRIVES OUR WORK:
THE “PALACE OF LOVE,” A HOME FOR LBQT HUMAN RIGHTS DEFENDERS:
Who protect the Defender at the Frontline?
How do we help Human Rights Defenders rejuvenate?
As we fight for freedom, we many times forget to focus on our selves. Many people also always have an assumption that those on the frontline are strong and always okey.
Human Rights Defenders have normalized staying silent amidst the different struggles and challenges because we think, when those who believe in us see us broken or weak, they would loose trust in us, loose hope or even them breaking down more.
It’s time to break the silence about the challenges and struggles those on the front line in this fight for freedom face most especially those fighting for the minority rights.
Did you know that Human Rights Defenders also face homelessness?
Did you know that they burnout and their Mental Health is affected?
Did you know that they also need Financial independence?
Did you know that many times they fail to stand up for them selves but continue standing up for others?
For years we have witnessed many LGBTQ Human Rights Defenders go into depression, lack what to eat, go homeless.
Resulting from their work or sexuality. Many energetic young Queer Human Rights Defenders decide go silent, talk through others because the fear to be exposed which can lead them to being homeless.
Don’t lose hope when all is not moving on well in your life; when you need a home, a family, when you need to heal, to re- energize, re- strategize, a peace of mind, when your lost, Rights 4 Her Uganda’s “Palace of Love,” is the place for you.
