Initiative Description

Lifeline Youth Empowerment Centre (LYEC) is a GBQ-led organisation based in Uganda. They aspire to provide needs-based protection and response services to GBQ men to create a Ugandan Gay, Bisexual, and Queer Community free from stigma, discrimination, and injustices. Although LYEC is a relatively new organisation, they have already positioned themselves as a safe and open space for discussing and creating awareness about sexual and domestic violence issues among the GBQ community. Most of their members have extensive experience working with LGBTQ organisations. They are also well known for the KuchuCare Web Application, that allows LGBTQ people to access personalised Health Care services conveniently and safely in Uganda.
