Who we are
PeriFerry is a social inclusion start-up working for the upliftment of the transgender community. With our focus on the “Human” part of HR; we help transgenders with entrepreneurial and employment opportunities, by identifying relevant job roles, providing training and jobs. Our aim is create truly diverse and inclusive workplaces fueled with empathy and emotional intelligence.
We stepped into this world in May 2017, armed with the primary focus on the inclusion of the transgender community - to enable them find their much deserved space and equal footing in a world, that has never previously recognized them as even remotely relevant.
WHAT’S IN A NAME?
The name actually comes from the word “Periphery” which means the edge. We relate this word to the people who are living their lives on the edge – and how we could, as facilitators, act as a ferry and help them get to their desired destinations.
