Gay Kenya Trust, supported by The Finnish NGO Foundation for Human Rights (KIOS), ran a project dubbed – Capacity Building for the LGB Rights Advocacy in Kenya. The project sought to address the information gap on human rights within the LGB community and among people that come to close contact with people of diverse sexual orientations: specifically, health practitioners, law enforcement agencies and religious leaders.

This was a community education project aimed at highlighting the human rights concerns of the LGB community, clarifying what the law actually says about LGB people as citizens, and revealing strategies the community can use to seek legal reform and access to better healthcare.
