HEAD OF SEED FOUNDATION
“SEED Foundation is the first trans-led community based organisation in Malaysia,” Nisha was quick to point out. But SEED Foundation is not all about representing just the trans-gender community they also work to empower all other socially excluded community as well. Nisha started the foundation when the previous government abandoned the foundation that she was working with previously and the people that she was championing was left with no avenue to turn to.
With horrendous experiences in her past when she was beaten and badly violated, Nisha has developed a backbone of steel. After her release from a short stint in jail, she first started off getting very vocal with her rights as a trans-gender woman before gaining international recognition when media and transgender people alike started showing her support and thanking her for the work that she has done. Currently Nisha is looking into expanding into health care for the trans-gender people with plans to open a specialised health clinic that focuses on giving trans-gender people focused healthcare treatments.
