Need for Garima Greh Yojana : Shelter Homes for Transgender Persons

To safeguard the rights of Transgender persons and protect the interest of the community, there is a prime need to establish Garima Grehs for the Transgender community. Section 8(4) of the TG Act 2019 has mentioned that the appropriate Government shall take steps for the rescue, protection and rehabilitation of transgender persons to address the needs of such persons. The establishment of Garima Greh will also align with the provision laid down under Section 12(3) of the TG Act 2019 which says that whether any parent or a member of his immediate family is unable to take care of a transgender, the competent court shall by an order direct such person to be placed in the rehabilitation centre.

Garima Grehs will not only ensure that the community has access to a safe and secure environment, it will also go a long way in the empowerment of transgenders. Presently, there are many welfare schemes for the vulnerable groups, but a huge section of the community doesn’t have access to basic facilities including proper housing facilities. There is an urgent need to start transgender shelter home (Garima Greh)facility with the inbuilt provision of skill development.
