Today Tranz Network Uganda (TNU) joins the rest of the World to commemorate the Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV), as we celebrate this day ironically in Uganda, transgender persons have been made more invisible when on March 21, 2023, the Parliament of Uganda Passed the Anti- Homosexuality Bill 2023 into law.
The project entitled “Increasing accessibility to socio-economic development prospects for Transgender persons in Greater Kampala Metropolitan Area in Uganda” is a six (6) month project implemented by Tranz Network Uganda funded by Uganda Key Populations Consortium (UKPC) with support from Hivos.
As part of the project, Tranz Network Uganda (TNU) would like to support the entrepreneurship skills development of transgender persons within the Greater Kampala Metropolitan Region. A total of ten (10) trans persons selected from TNU’s membership will be trained in business skills development, financial literacy, marketing etc.
It’s on this basis that TNU would like to contract an independent consultant to facilitate a training in this regard.
