Training of trainers
The Inner Circle (TIC) is an international queer Muslim organization based in Cape Town, SA. Our primary work is to assist queer Muslims to reconcile their Islamic identity with their sexual orientation and gender identity. TIC envisages a global Muslim community free from discrimination based on religion, sexual orientation and gender identity. Our mission is to raise consciousness through spirituality, education and movement building; bringing healing to Muslims who are marginalized based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Our aim is to build a movement that promotes the concept of an all-inclusive and compassion-centred Islam.
We have designed an intensive 3-month training program to develop a cadre of trainers who are able to train on Islam, sexual orientation and gender identity. Annually 6 international trainers return to their home countries and extend the training in their own organization , communities and networks, thus contributing to our vision for global social change.
