Next in our Customer Spotlight series we find out more about Micro Rainbow International.
Who are Micro Rainbow International?
Micro Rainbow International believe that many LGBTI people across the world are poor and/or remain poor because of their sexual orientation and/or gender identity.
They also believe that LGBTI people who are trapped in poverty can break the cycle if they are given the opportunity. With our work we want to address the situation of poverty of LGBTI people by making recommendations and devising actions that can alleviate such poverty.
“In 76 countries lesbian and gay people face imprisonment or torture, in 5 they face the death penalty, in many others we face discrimination and violence, as a result we believe LGBTI people experience significant poverty.”
