Project description

The project “Pour Moi, Pour Les Autres” (“For Me, For Others”) aims to improve the mental health and well-being of French-speaking LGBTQI activists in Haiti and Cameroon, and more generally in the Caribbean and Central and East Africa.

The project’s specific objectives are to:

  1. Document and increase visibility of the needs of French-speaking LGBTQI activists in terms of mental health and well-being;
  2. Reinforce skills and improve practices and services for front-line activists’ mental health and well-being;
  3. Create a practice of mutual aid and care between LGBTQI activists and the regional and international level, as well as  advocating for the integration of mental health as a cross-cutting axis for development programs among international lenders and organizations.

This innovative project draws from discussions and findings within communities and highlights the importance of both individual and collective well-being in activist spaces by placing activists’ well-being at the heart of the initiative, to foster strong and resilient LGBTQI movements.
