Kuchu Shiners Uganda (KSU) celebrated their 5th year anniversary on Wednesday 17th March 2021 at their office premises in Nansana, Kampala. To celebrate, they hosted several partner organizations, allies, KSU staff and membership to an HTC outreach with support from Kawaala Health Center. They also had a soap making and crafts exhibition by KSU members. “We have come a long way in fulfillment of our vision to empower transgender female sex workers in overcoming every form of stigmatization and discrimination due to societal transphobia,” Timothy The KSU Programs Director shared. He also noted the three major goals of KSU which are; to ensure the financial independence of transgender female sex workers through economic empowerment projects, improvement in accessibility to health care services and advocacy for rights and freedoms of transgender female sex workers would not be possible without the guidance of KSU’s partners and allies and further called for their continuous support and contribution to KSU’s progress in the future. Timothy further highlighted the organizational achievements which include visible growth of staff, members and KSU as an organization through recruitment of volunteers, peers and skills development, strengthened collaborations and partnerships that has helped widen their operations to different parts of the country (Kampala, Masaka, Kasese, Wakiso, Mubende, Mityana, Fort Portal, Mbale), new office space, a well maintained shelter for homeless transgender female sex workers and improvement in service delivery to the communities they serve through their peer network.
