WRAP TT seeks to eliminate incidents of violence against women in Trinidad and Tobago. Already a priority initiative of WRAP TT, we were alarmed by the statistics reported by the Minister of Social Development and Family Services, Senator the Honourable Donna Cox, showing that incidents of domestic violence leapfrogged from 232 (2019) to 556 (2020) and a shocking 826 (2021).
We are disturbed, saddened, and incentivized to make a difference to fight for the rightful freedom, equality, safety, and quality of life that women deserve in Trinidad and Tobago.
As a female-centered organization, we believe that the safety and flourishing of Trinbagonian women, the bearer of our future generations, is mission-critical to the thriving and standing of our beautiful nation.
Thus, during the weeks of 2023 November 25th to December 10th, WRAP TT will join in the global efforts of the United Nations to raise awareness, provide resources, and strengthen our resolve to collectively eradicate incidents of domestic violence against women.
WRAP TT’s theme for this year is H.O.P.E: Healing, Overcoming, Peace, and Empowerment. Our programming will center on three outcomes: Education, Visibility and Impact, with the goal of inspiring community members and victims of domestic abuse to activate and make strategic steps to improve conditions for women and children. We aim to partner with government officials who focus on women, children and families. In addition, service providers who aid victims and survivors of domestic violence, to curate an enriching schedule of educational presentations and community events that will amplify this cause.
