Thami Dish Foundation seeks to support young, LGBTI individuals from disadvantaged communities in South Africa.
One of our core objectives is to encourage and motivate young LGBTI members to dream beyond their current circumstances and moreover, to equip them with the necessary tools to propel themselves forward.
The Thami Dish Foundation offers positive, affirming, support to LGBTI youngsters with a view to contributing to a future where sexual diversity is fully understood and embraced within the South African society. We envision a tolerant and compassionate society where diversity is valued and appreciated.
The Thami Dish Foundation is strongly advocating for LGBTI persons and their rights as well as empowering the youth to uplift all people to ensure the future looks bright and accepting for all.
Currently The Thami Dish Foundation provides varying bursaries to LGBTI persons, ensuring they get the education they need. Unfortunately the case is that when some youth come out to their family as LGBTI their family divert their study funds, The Thami Dish Foundation seeks to help these youth.
Future planned campaigns include a anti-hate campaign which will take place in schools nationwide ensuring both students and staff members better understand and know how to treat people with alternative sexuality's and sexual identities. We also plan to create a LGBTI Youth Camp in the near future where interested LGBTI identifying youth leaders partake in a leadership camp to further empower themselves and in turn give them the tools they need to empower their communities, friends, family and environment to the benefit of the LGBTI community.
Make The Thami Dish foundation your first and only stop for any information or learning materials you need to better understand the LGBTI community.
Over time we plan to build the nations biggest LGBTI information and resource section. Our resources are built in-house and through collaboration with respected individuals from the LGBTI community. The people who create these resources can relate and understand the tough positions life puts your through and hope that through these resources they can provide the help and answers you need.
If you find that there's a issue you don't feel we've covered contact us and we'll work together to expand our knowledge base for future people like yourself.
