The Outreach Program is a sponsorship program to help people from locations other than Canada, the United States, Western Europe, Israel, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, and Hong Kong take part in Copenhagen 2009 World Outgames.
The Outreach Program has been established in order to have as many participants from as many countries as possible. World Outgames 2009, with its varied programs of sports, culture, and human rights conference, offers an ideal forum for exchanging experience and meeting people.
The Outreach Program aims to support 50 % men and 50 % women including transgender people.
An appointed Outreach Selection Committee composed of members from Copenhagen 2009 World Outgames, GLISA, EGLSF, ILGA, IGLHRC and HIVOS will propose applicants eligible for support from the program according to the selection criteria set by the organizers of Copenhagen 2009 World Outgames, and the level of support the proposed applicant should be offered.
