On April 19-20, 2022 Eglė Kuktoraitė, Communication Manager at the National LGBT rights organization LGL, participated in the kick-off partner meeting of the project “Colourful Childhoods”, which took place in Sofia (Bulgaria).
„Colourful Childhoods“ focuses on violence against LGBTIQ children in vulnerable contexts. Colourful Childhoods aims at preventing and combating all forms of violence against LGBTIQ children in vulnerable contexts related to the Covid-19 pandemic. A child-centred perspective and intersectional approach will be key to increase children’s empowerment, as well as their resilience.
The project’s aims will be achieved through a mix of interdisciplinary methodology and a participatory approach, in a 4-stage process. In stage 1, the project will develop a needs assessment of violence and well-being of LGBTIQ children in each country involved in the project. The National LGBT rights organization LGL will also be responsible for project communication.
The project „Colourful Childhoods“ is funded by the CERV-2021-DAPHNE Programme of the European Union.
