  • Organisation

    Rainbow Mirrors Uganda (RMU) is a youth Trans women sex-work led organisation that was established to support young Trans-women sex workers to create programmes and influence policies in the areas of gender, sexuality, health, and education. RMU envisions realisation of Trans rights through empowering them to take on leadership roles and economic empowerment to deal with the ordeal of limited access to employment which has forced many to resort to sex work. RMU also works on advocacy for an enabling policy environment to dispel societal prejudices and misconceptions about sexual orientation and gender identity. RMU has created strategic partnerships with like-minded Civil society organisations and thus it is a member of the Most At-Risk Populations Network, Uganda Harm Reduction Network handling issues of drugs, and Uganda Network of Young People Living with HIV/AIDS.

     Vision: A society where social justice inspires community engagement and equality for Trans-women sex workers such that they are realised, their leadership skills are enhanced and are free from all forms of discrimination.

     Mission: To promote, protect and advance young Trans women sex workers’ human rights through Fostering leadership, personal, economic, and professional growth through collaborations, capacity development, inclusion in all spheres and visual arts.

      This creates safe environments and effective strategies that reduces human rights violations among transgender women and provide high-quality services to them irrespective of their sexual orientation, where they live, their age, professions or lifestyle. The project provides an opportunity and skills to Transgender women to support other transgender women through the paralegal support systems.

      It also ensures documentation of violations of the rights of transgender women and transgender sex workers in Uganda and sharing the violations documented to contribute to an understanding of what transgender women and transgender sex workers go through as a result of criminalisation laws.
