Free and Equal Rights is an Indonesian NGO founded by activists and social entrepreneurs. The organization focuses especially on supporting LGBTIQ people.
In Indonesia, sometimes people are expelled out of their family home, if family discovers their non-straight sexual orientation. These people are in desperate need of a safe house to find refuge.
We fund Free and Equal Rights so they can open a short-stay shelter house and crisis center. Several side activities are offered, such as trainings on human rights, safety, capacity-building workshops, psychosocial and legal counseling. Advocacy work and a phone line for reporting LGBTIQ violence will also be implemented in the center.
