Growing up in a country in South Asia, Rakibul experienced constant fear and never felt safe.

He fled his home when he was 15 after his parents forced him to undergo conversion therapy. Facing harassment at work, assaults by the police and death threats, he reached out to Rainbow Railroad as a last resort.

Contacting our organization changed Rakibul’s life forever. When he arrived at Toronto’s Pearson Airport, he was immediately greeted by a volunteer settlement team who had helped sponsor his journey. In subsequent months, the team continued to support Rakibul as he oriented himself in his new country. He’s now finally able to pursue his studies in nursing and live his most authentic life.
