Panos Caribbean's goals are to enable the people of the Caribbean to conceive, drive and communicate their own development agenda. To develop media, information and communication partnerships, to communicate towards development.
To amplify the voices of the vulnerable, the marginalized and the excluded.
Children and young people in the Caribbean face numerous challenges. At Panos Caribbean, we believe that youth can provide solutions to those problems.

One of those rights is for children to be able to express their own opinions on matters affecting them and that these are taken into account.
The Convention also speaks to the child’s right to receive and share information of all kinds either orally, written in the form of art, or through any other media of their choice.
