Familial conflict, social stigma, and a lack of opportunities and support - these are the forces that often push a transgender person to the fringes of the society.
Deriving our name from this very phenomenon - being at the edge - we at PeriFerry take a two-pronged approach to not only facilitate livelihood opportunities to the transgender community but to also co-create workplaces that are truly inclusive and nurturing to all LGBTQIA+ individuals.
*As on February 2024.
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.
