Panos Caribbean Panos Marks 25 Years of Development Work in the Caribbean on June 1, 2011. The organisation, which works through media in the Caribbean to raise awareness on issues affecting marginalized persons with the aim of having those issues addressed, will observe this milestone with a variety of activities between JUNE 2011-JUNE 2012.
Panos is focussing on one of our programme areas each quarter: our Environment programme from June – August, Children & Youth from September – November, Health (HIV) from December- February and Gender from March – June 2012.
For twenty-five years Panos has been working with the media and other communicators to foster debate on under-reported, misrepresented or misunderstood development issues. We believe that only by including the voices and views of those most affected by these issues – usually the poorest and most marginalised people in society – will lasting solutions be found.
Excerpts from these two videos produced by Panos Caribbean will also be aired on CVM during the programme.
