End SGBV NOW!
Walk away when you feel threatened...
CHADALA champions for an end to SGBV with a focus on LBQ women who are vulnerable and highly discriminated upon because of our sexual orientation, gender identity and expression(SOGIE). Many of us are survivors of SGBV with lived stories to tell. Most of us have been subjected to corrective rape, forced marriages, unintended pregnancy, domestic violence, blackmail, possible forced eviction, unlawful arrest etc which in turn has led to a rise in mental health conditions, drugs and substance abuse.
Whenever you work with us, you can trust that you’re in great hands.

End Violence,Stigma and Discrimination Against LBQ Women!
Sexual minority women continue to face violence, stigma and discrimination from loved ones and the society at large. CHADALA advocates for the equal representation of sexual minority women moreso in the rural areas, who are misrepresented and less informed about their fundamental human rights. LBQ women deserve sits at all decision making and leadership tables/spaces. We need a more empowered and inclusive world free from violence, stigma and discrimination.......#WeBelong!
