RIFA Team @ IDAHOT in 2017

Welcome to the website for RIFA Rwanda. We hope this website will be a place for LBT Rwandans to find more information about health and social well-being of Rwanda’s LBT, find a safe space for them in order to discuss and provide peer support on the unique issues affecting the LBT community.


RIFA works for improved health, rights and protections of LBT/sex worker individuals in Rwanda by providing direct services, advocating for structural change while investing in LBT and sex worker civil societies across the country.


RIFA envisions a Rwandan society that respects and promote fundamental Human rights, ensuring comprehensive access to health and freedom from all forms of discrimination regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity.
