Ife is a beautiful young (21) trans woman from Nigeria.
She’s surviving on street hustles.
Five minutes talking with her and you realize how intelligent she is. She’s well read and can talk about gender theory like a western baby trans. As we discuss plans to get her out, she emphasizes, over and over, how important it is to her to get to somewhere she can continue her education.
When she first contacted us she was living in poor conditions. Soldiers came to her flat and threatened her, and neighbors were harassing her, so she had trouble entering or leaving the flat.
We moved her to a safe house, but have been having trouble getting her out of Nigeria. She once called it ‘her never ending vacation’.
A family member caught up with her at the safe house, and we’ve had to move her to another city.
She can’t really pass as a boy, so it’s particularly difficult to get her out.
She’s interested in languages and wants to live a normal life. We’d like to get her to a European country where she has family.
We have a scheme to get her out, but it’s going very slowly. It’s very hard to get a visa to a safe place from Nigeria.
Please help us get Ife out.
