The activity Bonela focused its Lesson Learned Document on is the Gender and Sexual Minorities Coalition which operates in Gaborone and surrounding areas in Botswana. Convened together with LEGABIBO, the coalition aims to challenge structural barriers, like law and religion, to health and wellbeing that most at risk populations face at multiple levels in Botswana. The target was to enable greater impact advocating for change through collaborative efforts amongst its member organisations. Since it was first conceptualised in 2011, the coalition has collaborated on spaces for support groups, court cases, world awareness days, training, documentation, and funding. This Lessons Learned document looked at the current state of the coalition, including successes, challenges and ways forward.
