Team No Sleep work in Rongai, Kenya serving LGBTQ+ refugees. Their advocacy work ranges from sensitisation forums on HIV/AIDs to testing and screenings, and community outreaches. They also support local LGBTQ+ refugees to find employment opportunities that utilise their skills and gifts. LGBTQ+ refugees face challenges accessing formal employment opportunities.
Team No Sleep are Xavier Project’s newest refugee-led organisation partner and are currently doing weekly in-person training sessions of our Capacity Strengthening and Sharing course. The team is applying the good practices that they are learning from the course in other areas of their advocacy work with refugee communities in Rongai.
