Long term Objective

  1. Establish a safe space for intersex people
    (The intersex people are driven out of their home and left to fend for themselves. In order to build a strong intersex community there is a need to establish a safe space, a shelter that will provide intersex people safety and security. The much-needed psychological interventions can also be assessed through this space and capacity enhancement along with education needs can be met through a shelter service. The goal of a holistic development of intersex community can be ensured through the various facilities that a safe house/ shelter can provide)
