LEHA was formed in the year 2015 and registered under the name LEHA self-help group. LEHA was formed due to concerns from the rural LBQ community in Mount Kenya region for they were being left out in important happenings which included but not limited to less involvement in the movement building and participation. LBQ persons in these region faced a lot of incidents which included corrective rape, physical and verbal assault, denial of entry to recreational spaces, unlawful dismissals from employment, unlawful evictions, expulsion from schools as well as neglect and ostracization by family members and supportive structures. This is due to the fact that most of the LBQ were/are not affiliates of any group because they were/are in the closest and inactive thus making it very hard to access services, opportunities, recognition in case of any emergencies as well as inadequate access to information regarding health and rights of the LGBTIQ persons in Kenya.
To promote the comprehensive well being of LBQ persons in Mt Kenya region by conducting research and generating information, offering empowerment, engaging in Advocacy efforts, facilitating the health services and ensuring their safety and security.
To ensure LBQ persons are healthy empowered safe and represented
