INTRODUCING SASH UNIVERSITY!
No, we're not opening up a tertiary university (though what an interesting school would that be), but we have aided an outstanding group of our volunteers to establish a more permanent SASH presence at the University of the Bahamas.
SASH University is the official chapter of SASH Bahamas at the UB. The student population will be able to benefit from the same services that SASH Bahamas offers to its clients. Students will be able to access peer counseling, empowerment through workshops and seminars, exposure to diverse professionals, and rewarding community service.
It's that time of year again! As you may or may not know, SASH's operating year ranges from February to November. During our operating year is where we run our programs, host our fundraisers, and try to execute the goals we planned for that year.
It's now holiday season! This means from Dec 1st, 2017 to Jan. 31st, 2018, SASH will temporarily suspend all programmatic and operating activities. The board and staff at SASH normally takes Dec and Jan of each year to plan and structure the upcoming operating year, and to wind up the previous operating year. New holiday hours are M-F 12pm -6pm, Sat and Sun by appointment. Effective Dec. 11th, 2017.

SAFE SEX PACKS AVAILABLE
Free safe sex packs are now available at SASH Bahamas. In a campaign to advocate for safe sex practices among the LGBT community, the first of 3 sex packs are now available at SASH.
The MSM safe sex packs are inclusive of personal lubricants, regular sized and large condoms, and HIV/STI prevention education materials, as well information on safe and discreet testing centers.
Available during our office hours. Ask for discreet packaging if you are a little shy! Don't think you need it? It's better to have it and not need it, then to need it and not have it!
SASH signs on to adopt the Caribbean Policy Development Center's Code of Ethics and Conduct for Caribbean Non Profit Organizations.
"The Code reflects the growth of the NGO sector as it attempts to proactively address issues of transparency and accountability. It addresses critical areas of NGO donor, government and stakeholder engagement. It frontally speaks to the issue of the professional ethics, the responsibility of NGOs to be financially accountable not only to donors but also to stakeholders, the ethics involved in fundraising and the issue of the neutrality, autonomy and independence of the sector. "
The Executive Director's NEW YEAR'S ADDRESS
" At SASH Bahamas, we know and appreciate diversity and limitations. We thrive on being seen as a marginalized, ostracized and even overlooked organization because then, and only then, are we able to sit with those in need that have no voice, ......" Read more
