Legal, Fiscal and Funding Framework Meeting

Legal, Fiscal and Funding Framework Meeting

 

On Wednesday July 22nd, 2015, thirty-seven people from twenty-four civil society and private sector organisations came together to have premier discussion on an intiative to improve the legal, fiscal and funding framework for the civil society sector. Some of the organisations present included: Adult Literacy Tutors Association (ALTA), Energy Chamber of T&T, Habitat for Humanity, Kids in Need of Direction, National PTA of T&T, Social Justice Foundation and Transparency Institute. Even though discussion remains in its early stages, we hope to have more organisations join us so we can have a strong voice to truly invoke change.
