In Costa Rica, ELLA Global Community aims to generate momentum and give support to local initiatives that work to promote visibility as well as to empower lesbian, bisexual and trans women, providing them with a safe meeting space, and raising awareness about their challenges and aspirations to advocate for non-discrimination and inclusion of the LGBTI community.
Working with local civil society, institutions and national and international organisations, our strategy in Costa Rica will focus on promoting three key elements: visibility, community building and empowerment.
