New Delhi, July 12 -- A Delhi-based transgender rights group declared 28 city schools as 'transgender-inclusive' on Thursday.

The schools - 25 of which are government-run in localities such as Seelampur, Batla House, Siraspur Badli, Shahdra, and Rohini -were deemed inclusive on the basis of their actions, such as allotting separate toilet facilities for gender non-conforming children and conducting sessions on transgender-related issues.

SPACE, a Delhi-based NGO, in collaboration with directorate of education (DoE), with support from the Netherlands Embassy, recognized the 28 schools.
