I started the Improved Youth Health Initiative in Nigeria because of the need to create a network of young LGBTQ people, fighting together for their rights to access to sexual health information and resources.
We provide condoms and do workshops to educate and train young people about sexual health and rights. We even work with doctors to help them provide better care and support for HIV positive LGBTQ people.
This is just a fraction of what we do, and we want to do more so LGBTQ youth in Nigeria and around the world are truly free.
Because of Advocates for Youth, I have traveled to the U.S. to develop my organizing skills, met other activists around the world invested in the same work, and connected with other activists as part of a global movement. Advocates changed the course of my life and, because of my work, my country. Now, it’s your turn.
