American Friends of the Other Foundation
Dedicated to advancing human rights in southern Africa, with a particular focus on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people.
Other Foundation (ZA) A Project of O | KBFUS Funds
We are a grant-maker and a fundraiser to expand resources available for defending and advancing the rights of LGBTI people in Southern Africa.
The Other Foundation is a community foundation that protects and advances the human rights, well being, and social inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex people in southern Africa. It gathers support for those who are doing this work and gives support in a smart way that helps groups to work better for lasting change.
Currently, our primary purpose is to expand resources available for defending and advancing the rights of LGBTI people in Southern Africa. We do this by working both as a grant-maker and a fundraiser.
As a grant-maker, we support change through others, rather than directly ourselves. So we provide direct support to partners, while facilitating the building and sharing of knowledge.
As a fundraiser, we focus on raising resources from a wide range of potential givers – particularly from within the region. One of the ways we intend to do this is by supporting campaigns to build awareness and reinforce appreciation for LGBTI people to enjoy their rights within a broader human rights framework.
At present, we are located in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Contribute to a self-sustaining human rights movement in Southern Africa.
