Safe spaces

Our CEEP programme assists LGBTQI+ people to initiate Safe Spaces in their communities. These safe spaces are spaces for LGBTQI+ groups to come together to share their pains, frustration, joys and endeavours. This is also a space to learn and grow as an individual person. Groups are encouraged to be part of any forums, networks, and social mobilisation in their communities in order to have their voices heard.

They are also encouraged to take up positions in their communities to give LGBTQI+ people a stronger voice in communities.


Workshops, training and mentoring

Triangle Project supports Safe Spaces by providing workshops, training and mentoring to groups on areas such as HIV prevention and treatment, sexual and reproductive health, political education and consciousness.

We also convene the Safe Space Leadership Forum, the Women’s group and the Men’s group, all of which run a variety of capacity building workshops surrounding different issues relevant to the community.

There’s no meeting close to me

Well then why not start your own. Have a look at the simple process below.

Get in touch with us and discuss your interest in starting a Safe Space in your area. We’ll visit you after you have gathered a few other interested people that we can talk to. Don’t worry if you don’t know anyone else who may be interested, get in touch, there might already be someone in your community who has approached us! In some cases an incident happens in that particular community; we then go in and work around the incident by mobilising LGBTQI+ people and on the basis of that a group is formed. Each Space comes together in its own interesting way, but all of them start by contacting us.
