About TWEET Foundation 

Transgender Welfare Equity and Empowerment Trust (TWEET) aka Tweet Foundation is a community-based organization in India based out of New Delhi and Mumbai was established by seven trans activists in 2015 to serve the young trans movement, especially the transmen community that faces extreme gender-based violence and has been highly invisibilized. TWEET is a completely trans-led organization and as a pioneer in India, represents an equal partnership among transmen & transwomen. The organization came into existence to support work specifically on issues that had not been addressed in other larger HIV or advocacy programs in the past in India. Resources for young trans people have been scarce and the real issues of the community from a social, psychological, and economical standpoint have remained unaddressed. Tweet works to provide critical support to young transmasculine and transfeminine persons such as crisis support, short shelter stay, health and legal resources, and connecting with skill-building and inclusive employment opportunities. On the other hand, Tweet works closely with the stakeholders for mainstreaming advocacy. Tweet works with the government to bring in policy-level changes and works with civil societies and corporates to build strategic partnerships to support the trans movement and trans welfare. Tweet Foundation is a registered society under Mumbai Charity Commissioner (registered in May 2017). 

Our mission is to build an empowered, self-sufficient, and vibrant Trans movement in India by wholly caring for the welfare of transgender people; their education, medical treatment, legal standing, and culture and social wellbeing.
