History

In March 2017, young Queer persons united to form Rella Uganda so as to address the vulnerable state of LBQ persons in Uganda. Some of the vulnerabilities we were experiencing included repetitive homelessness, unemployment, and shortcomings in LBQ Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) services and information, leadership, and advocacy.

 

 

‘Rella’ is a section of the word ‘Umbrella’. Like the umbrella, we commit to creating safe spaces for our partners and beneficiaries. We were successfully and fully registered under the laws of Uganda on the 23rd of November 2017 with the help of a local advocacy organization known as Chapter Four Uganda as Rella Women’s Foundation Limited.
