How can we forget LGBTQ community which is devastatingly affected by this social discrimination stigma that is deeply ingrained in our societies. Traditions and culture make it harder for them to compete for opportunities or to even enjoy peace just being who they are. They seek equality and non-discrimination—rights that they inherently own. To some extent, they have gained big and small wins in its fight for equal rights.

Seeing this stigma of social discrimination prevalent in society, countless NGOs have raised their hands to finally end it from the society. The first and foremost step is to empower and educate people. The set standards need to be changed for the betterment of society.

    Good evening, I think your Premium fees exclude many and therefore discriminatory. You offer all the best opportunities to your elitest club! How can we also have access to this cake, without the US$? We are a small community based organization, which is entirely volunteer based. We are trying to fill the gap in rehabilitation service provision for children with disability in a poor suburb in Harare, Zimbabwe. Constancy and sustainability are challenge! Please assist by re-directing us to where we can get help for poor resourced organizations. Thank you very much in anticipation!!
