Building the leaders of tomorrow
Basera Samajik Sansthan is a CBO with its registered number 914-2006-2007 under Uttar Pradesh NGO Registry Act. Founded in 2006, Basera Samajik Sansthan is a non-governmental organization operating its interventions to support sustained responses to HIV in India that protect rights and improve health. Complementing the Indian national program, we build capacity of LGBT communities. Forced to the margins of our society are the people bearing the brunt of the epidemic: Sex workers. Men who have sex with men (MSM). Transgenders and hijras. Vulnerable youth and women. People from all walks of life living with HIV (PLHIV).
The organizations focuses on protecting and expanding the rights of LGBTQ Individuals, most notably advocating for Transgender rights, anti-discrimination and hate crimes legislation, documenting and reporting on Gender Base Violence and HIV AIDS advocacy. BSS strongly believes in supporting LGBTQ people thrive and live with dignity.
Basera Samajik Sansthan has been implementing various projects with support from Civil society organizations such as India HIV AIDS Alliance, The Hum Safar Trust, and MAMTA. BSS has been also associated with Asia Pacific Transgender Network, Integrated Network of Sexual Minority (INFOSEM), All India Sex workers Network (AINWS), and NATTKHA. Some of the long-term projects that we have implemented are Pehchan, Wajood, and Prayas supported by Alliance India (http://www.allianceindia.org/) and CONNECT Project by the Humsafar Trust (https://humsafar.org/). We have also implemented a project supported by Asia Pacific Transgender Network (https://weareaptn.org/) for recent COVID pandemic support to Transgender people in 2020. We are now glad to say that we are receiving ISRG(Indian Strategic Resource Grants) by Women’s Asia.
