Youth conference aims at tackling violence on all fronts.
“Reshaping and Mobilizing our Youths from Intervention to Prevention for a Violence-free Environment”, was the theme of a youth conference aimed at tackling violence on all fronts.
The conference was hosted by CADVA- the Caribbean American Domestic violence Awareness group at the Pegasus Hotel. Founder of CADA Sukree Boodram a domestic violence survivor, said that their aim is to empower young people to make a change.
Delivering brief remarks at the conference US Ambassador Brent Hart said that it is important to raise the awareness of violence.
He said he was encouraged by countries stepping up to take on the challenge.
CADVA is hoping that victims can break the silence against all forms of violence and they are leading the way through counseling, empowerment and are targeting people from the grass roots level.
