GRAG Residential Learning Center for Vulnerable People is designed to empower some of the most vulnerable members of West Africa’s population.
The center will employ innovative strategies to address issues of advocacy, basic needs, gender, social norms, discrimination and social justice. Its aim is to provide a safe space for minority groups, including men who have sex with men (MSM), male and female sex workers, women who have sex with women (WSW) among other marginalized groups.
A 9-month pilot phase will be implemented, after which the GRAG team will carry out an evaluation in order to orient the development of an extension phase. Lessons learned from this evaluation will be used to extend program throughout Senegal and its replication in other countries across West Africa.
