Some Good News For a Change

We have heard from one of our conductors that the Rwanda Government is actively and openly welcoming LGBT people. They are providing help with housing, job placement, as well as permanent residence cards.

It is only for those with college diplomas and degrees. There is a history, as Uganda in the past has often provided people with technical expertise and advanced training to Rwanda

The conductor further reports that they have been contacted indirectly (through the Railroad facilitators in third countries) by companies and job agency recruiters from Rwanda.

Now, it’s not so easy. LGBT folks cannot go directly to Rwanda to receive assistance. This has to be arranged in Uganda itself (almost impossible) or in third countries to which our passengers are fleeing. Still, it is great to have such encouraging news to report.
