The Rainbow Alive Hub Initiative (TRAHI) is a non-governmental organization committed to promoting and protecting the rights of LGBTQI+ individuals in Nigeria. TRAHI is implementing a Digital Empowerment Training, which aims to enhance the socio-economic capacity of LGBTQI+ persons by providing digital technology-based skills training.
Through this initiative, we aim to empower selected LGBTQI+ participants, enabling them to navigate the digital landscape, acquire valuable skills, and access new employment and entrepreneurial opportunities. Ultimately, the project seeks to contribute to broader development outcomes, such as improved employment prospects, economic stability, and a more prosperous state and country. This aligns with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, specifically SDG 1 (No Poverty) and SDG 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth).
The Digital Empowerment Training is a three-month-long virtual intensive program designed to empower LGBTQI+ persons in Nigeria with the skills and knowledge to utilize digital technology to improve their lived experience.
