Burundi criminalizes sexual activity between same sex partners, both male and female. Since 2011, the projects of Moulin des Libertés (MOLI) contribute towards promoting human rights and freedom for sexual minorities.
With PlanetRomeo Foundation funding, MOLI is organizing focus groups consisting of LGBT people. These groups are educated on basic human rights and trained on security issues. During these training days, they aim to reach over 200 LGBT people in urban and rural Burundi.
So far, MOLI organized nine human rights education focus groups targeted at LGBT individuals in Burundi’s rural areas. They have supported other organizations in designing booklets targeting MSM peer educators, while also launching their own brochure called Orientation Sexuelle, Identité et Expression de Genre au Burundi: Droits, Codes et Lois, which can be downloaded here.
