Facilitating sustainable livelihoods to
Transgender persons and fostering LGBTQIA+ equity at workplaces.
From 'PERIPHERY' to the 'CENTRE STAGE'
Familial conflict, social stigma, and a lack of opportunities and support. These are the forces that push a transgender person to the fringes of society.
PeriFerry has derived its roots and name from the very phenomenon - to be at the edge. Founded in 2017 by young social entrepreneurs, we are the first-of-its-kind impact enterprise in India that is solely dedicated to creating employment and upskilling opportunities for the transgender community.
*As on 10th May, 2022.
Centred on the Community
Our programs are curated in consultation with and co led by people from the LGBTQ+ community, and draw heavily from their lived experiences.
Bridging Two Very Unique Worlds
PeriFerry’s nuanced approach is to integrate two unique players: the corporates and the LGBTQIA+ community; hence providing services that are scalable and impactful.
What you see is what you get: we are honest about what we can offer and will always prioritize your needs. Get suggestions if they're not within our scope of work.
