Calling to end pushing LGBTIs into double victimization!
- First, donors do not fund LGBTI support programs (except few exceptions over the recent years and its too little).
- Second, donors continue funding governments ignoring their human rights violations against LGBTIs.
As an example following are the areas that USAID and Department of State budget provide foreign aid to other countries:
Peace and Security, Counter-Terrorism, Combating WMD, Stabilization/Security Sector Reform, Counter-narcotics, Transnational Crime, Conflict Mitigation, Investing in People, Health, Education, Social Services/Protection of Vulnerable,
Governing Justly & Democratically, Rule of Law & Human Rights, Good Governance,
Political Competition, Civil Society, Economic Growth, Macroeconomic Growth, Trade & Investment, Financial Sector, Infrastructure, Agriculture, Private Sector Competitiveness, Economic Opportunity, Environment, Humanitarian Assistance,
Protection, Assistance & Solutions, Disaster Readiness, Migration Management .
These are similar areas by other governments, UK, EU, Canada, Australia, UN, World Bank and other international institutions provide foreign Aid or loan for ‘good’ cause.
