Home 5 Our programs

Two programs driven by one commitment

To achieve our mission, SafePlace International has two core programs that address the security of marginalized communities and foster the leadership capacity of displaced LGBTQIA+ persons.

The Dream Academy (TDA)

Leadership training that transforms trauma and shame into power and determination

The Dream Academy is our community-led, 10-week intensive virtual course focusing on leadership development, socio-emotional learning, and job skills training that paves the way for healing, growth, and leadership that will lead to sustainable social change.

“To be myself as a Ugandan transgender man, I have gone through a lot growing up, but The Dream Academy has helped me in many ways, and I am so happy that I can now stand up for myself and the transgender community.”

Global Family Initiative (GFI)

Impact investing in projects designed and led by the communities they serve

We work directly and in partnership to connect people to resources like safe housing, food and supplies, well-being support, and critical information, as well as seed funding for community impact projects, which contribute to economic, environmental, and social well-being.
