Founded in 2015 by Rikki Nathanson, The Trans* Research, Education, Advocacy and Training (TREAT) was the first trans-led, and gender-diverse focussed organisation in Zimbabwe. TREAT’s mission is to inform and transform attitudes and address injustice and inequalities faced by the Trans diverse population in Zimbabwe.

Background

After being arrested under charges such as criminal nuisance for using the “wrong” bathrooms in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, Bulawayo, Rikki Nathanson realised the huge gap in the general public’s ignorance and miseducation about gender, transgender and gender diverse people. Rikki relocated to the US, claiming asylum.  Sam Ndluvo has been the Executive Director of TREAT since 2019.

Mission

To inform and transform attitudes and address injustice and inequalities faced by Trans diverse population in Zimbabwe.
