Working to combat domestic abuse and other forms of gender based violence through advocacy, training, free counselling and public awareness.
As part of L’Oréal’s ongoing efforts and commitment to support women’s rights, L’Oréal Fund For Women has pledged TTD$598,228 to the Coalition Against Domestic Violence in Trinidad and Tobago (CADV), a non-governmental coalition of organizations as well as a registered charity located in Trinidad and Tobago, to support its mission in protecting, advocating and empowering women in Trinidad.
In an effort to unite individuals and organisations within Trinidad and Tobago that were working to combat domestic and other forms of gender based violence, the Coalition Against Domestic Violence (CADV) was established by Mrs. Diana Mahabir-Wyatt and Ms. Radhica Saith in 1988.
The CADV is an independent, non-governmental organisation that advocates for the protection of the rights of the vulnerable members of society including women and girls. The CADV engages in numerous consultations, collaborations and meetings with NGO’s and CBO’s to create strategic alliances and partnerships.
The CADV maintains a broad history of innovation evident through the execution of various programmes which are responsive to the needs of the people of Trinidad and Tobago. Through training, counselling, advocacy, public awareness campaigns and its team of legal advocates, the CADV continues to provide support and guidance to survivors of domestic violence.
The Trinidad and Tobago Coalition Against Domestic Violence (CADV) is committed to ensuring that children, women, and men in Trinidad and Tobago live in an environment free from physical, emotional, sexual, and psychological violence.
