Our mission is to collaboratively provide emotional and psychological assistance and resources for young people who identify or are perceived as gender variant and/or trans. Our aim is to share information about the unique needs and experiences of this community with families, allies, educators, and service providers to ensure, advocate, and promote a healthy, caring, and safe environment for all gender-variant youth.
Matimba envisions a world that allows and empowers transgender and gender variant youth to express themselves in all spaces that they occupy. A world that is conducive for trans and gender-variant youth to be themselves with the support of their family and allies.
