Équité Sri Lanka is a registered organization under the land registration office, Sri Lanka as a Non-profit trust since June 2019. Equité Sri Lanka was formed (unofficially but with a social media presence) in May 2017, and operated by a group of enthusiastic human rights activists. Équité comprises of a small team of multi-disciplinary experts, experienced in research and advocacy in a range of development and humani-tarian specialties. Équité?s vision is to secure Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights for all individuals in Sri Lanka, especially for those from the LGBTIQ community. Équité?s mission is to impart knowledge, develop skills and change attitudes among LGBTIQ persons in marginalized settings, in order to elevate their status to be equals in society. Équité uses a variety of methods to reach these goals, including training and capacity building of both LGBTIQ community members and non-community members, advocacy, research and reporting to national and international institutions (including UN mechanisms), and awareness raising through social media and other means. The grant aims to eliminate the discrimination towards the LGBTIQ community by challenging the social stigma and misconceptions.
