Humanity First Cameroon’s mission is to promote LGBTI rights by conducting educational activities, observing human rights violations of LGBTIs and advocating the rights of sexual minorities.
In Cameroon, both male and female same-sex sexual activity is illegal. This gives rise to many forms of oppression and violence towards the Cameroonian LGBTI community.
With PlanetRomeo Foundation funding, Humanity First Cameroon will set up a shelter for young people, who have become homeless because of family rejection or have been the victim of violence due to their sexual orientation. Additionally, psychosocial support will be given, in order to reduce anxiety, prevent depression and build self-esteem. Help with social reintegration will also be provided.
