Happy Birthday PSI Caribbean: Our Activities – Part One.

PSI Caribbean 10th Anniversary Logo (Final)It’s been several months of research, strategizing, planning and finally executing. PSI Caribbean is celebrating 10 years of providing services in the Caribbean and what better time to launch our new gender-based violence prevention campaign?

To help us with our launch, singer, songwriter, actress and PSI Ambassador, Mandy Moore and philanthropist Indrani Goradia, joined the PSI-Caribbean team last week along with the WIN team from Washington. It indeed a productive and interactive week filled with media engagements, field visits to our programs and of course the main event(s) our launch and our 10th anniversary gathering.

We began with media interviews:
