German government continues its support for LGBT human rights
Out-Right Namibia, the largest civil society organisation focused on the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender community in Namibia, recently received a donation of close to N$1.1 million from Germany for a new project.
German Embassy Chargé d’Affaires, Dr Andreas Götze also signed an agreement for the project with ORN Board Chairperson Agapitus Hausiku in Windhoek last week.
The €64,995 donation by the German Embassy, will fund Out-Right’s newly launched project to ensure inclusivity and equitable access to non-discriminatory services to sexual and gender diverse individuals through advocacy and continuous stakeholder engagement.
“The German government continues to campaign assiduously for human rights around the world. The Federal Foreign Office supports some 120 to 140 projects of varying sizes each year around the world in emerging and developing countries in Africa, Asia, Central, and South America, and Eastern Europe,” the Embassy said in a statement.
