The program “Empowering the trans community” began as co-operation between PRAKSIS and the Greek Transgender Support Association, in January 2017. Its goal is to support the community of trans and, in general, gender-diverse and intersex people, through activities of health promotion and empowerment / skills’ building in sectors such as advocacy, fundraising, communication, etc.
The program “Empowering the trans community” supports and empowers not only trans people but also their families and partners.
Trans people are one of the most vulnerable groups. Their basic human rights are violated, they experience limited access and exclusions from the sectors of education, employment, health and welfare. Older trans people are not able to get a pension, while many trans children were driven off their family when they came out about their gender identity, while others were forced to leave school due to bullying.
