What do we do?

Our work

SPORTS COMMUNITY BUILDING

We organise sports activities and events to promote community building and positive mental health care through exercise and bringing people together.

ADVOCACY & RESEARCH

We give a voice to communities that face marginalisation and do not have access to adequate health care, through awareness raising and research.

Why Iguality?

Underserved communities often face limited access to quality education and employment opportunities, perpetuating a situation of marginalisation.

Discrimination & Social Exclusion

Marginalized groups face discrimination and social exclusion, hindering their participation in society and reinforcing their disadvantaged position.

The people at Iguality

From one of our volunteer therapists

Veronica is one of the dozens volunteers active at Iguality, using her background in clinical psychology to support a wide range of people through Iguality with weekly therapy. She worked with refugees, homeless people and other people in situations at risk, and her help has been exemplary for our work.

“Iguality is an excellent organization. Working with them is extremely satisfying due to the clear and large social impact it has on people’s lives.”
