Ndabaga’s Sisters

Empowering Rwanda’s LBQ Sisterhood

Our fight is for our sisters.


In Rwanda, many people still deny that queerness exists. And the nonprofit organizations that are out there focus on gay men, which is only one part of our diverse community. Though Rwanda’s Constitution stands against discrimination, protections for queer citizens are on shaky grounds. Same sex marriage is not recognized, and there are even calls to criminalize homosexuality, calling it a “moral genocide.” Queer Rwandans face incitements to violence from the media, arbitrary detentions from the police, and threats of their very identities being criminalized.


Who is advocating for Ndabaga’s sisters? Rwanda’s lesbian, bisexual, and queer daughters have a voice.

Our mission is to elevate our queer sisters by advocating for LBQ rights, economic prospects, and physical and mental health.

SMASHING THE STATUS QUO. ELEVATING OUR SISTERS.

Through our services and events, we are able to work individually and collectively with LBQ girls in Rwanda to develop their entrepreneurship, provide mental health tools, and strengthen our community.

Ndabaga expanded the definition of what it meant to be a girl…and what it means to be a hero.
