Four Walls

Awareness Campaign, Egypt.

Project Description

Creating a list of LGBTQIA+ friendly places in Egypt to enable the creation of a participatory space between LGBTQIA+ people that allows them to add new safe places as they find them. The project further provides an opportunity to report any incidents of abuse that LGBTQIA+ people may encounter throughout Egypt and document areas where they were abused or stigmatized. Thus, LGBTQIA+ people in Egypt benefit from the possibility of finding safe spaces in an easier way preventing or limiting exposure to any harassment or problem.

The main goals of this project are:

– Providing safe spaces at health and social service providers, civil society organizations, and the workplace.

– Encouraging civil society organizations to include LGBTQIA+ people in their activities.

– Monitoring LGBTQIA+-friendly places in Cairo, among the LGBTQIA+ people themselves.

Project Development

The advocacy project was implemented to create safe spaces for LGBTQIA+ people in Egypt and Jordan. Implementation started on 9/15/2019 and the project lasted for about 4 and a half months.

To implement the Four Walls project, two trainings were conducted for the staff members on local advocacy and fieldwork. Then a strategic meeting was held to set up communication mechanisms during the project with business partners.

The project documented also a number of cases where violence occurred against LGBTQIA+ people in public places, through a series of private interviews with concerned persons, service providers, and civil society organizations.

In a related context, service providers and members of civil society organizations were trained on gender, and LGBTQIA+ people were introduced to the project through sessions and campaigns on social media.
