What is Spectra Project?

Spectra Project is a U.S.-based organization, which supports LGBTQ minorities of the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region. Spectra Project was founded in 2016 based on a commitment to ensure a better life for others by providing access to basic emergency support, health facilities, education and safety.

Spectra Project is a humanitarian organization. It is non-political and non-religious. Our goal is to improve the lives of minorities, especially the most vulnerable, including people of different sexual orientations, genders, gender expressions and religions/religious sects.

1. Vision

Our vision is a world in which every human being attains the right to survival, protection and development.

2. Mission

Spectra Project was created to help lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender refugees living in the Middle East. Since resources for these individuals are extremely limited, Spectra Project will offer a safe space and immediate aid through emergency services. Spectra Project’s long-term goal is to achieve lasting change through education, both for refugees who need new skills and to the public about the needs and issues of LGBT individuals.

3. Values

Equality: We believe in a world where everyone has the same rights, without any discrimination or persecution.  We work with that vision.

Diversity: We welcome diversity and thrive on it. We work to ensure that every individual reaches their full potential.

Accountability: We take responsibility for using our resources efficiently, achieving measurable results, and being accountable to supporters.

Integrity: We aspire to live the highest standards of personal honesty and behavior.
