How aid donors and ‘feminist’ governments have funded backers of Uganda’s deadly Anti-Homosexuality Bill
The Centre for Feminist Foreign Policy is proud to support and host this report from Claire Provost and Nana Darkoa Sekyiamah, the Founding Partners of The Institute for Journalism and Social Change.
Based on an in-depth examination of financial records published by aid donors themselves.
It reveals how taxpayers across Europe and North America have been connected – without their knowledge – to anti-LGBTQI religious groups in Uganda. This has happened, at a large scale, despite repeated pledges from these donors (which are all part of the global Equal Rights Coalition) to protect and promote LGBT rights around the world. Some of this funding is ongoing.
The authors of the report emailed the aid donors/development partners that came up in the research.
