ITNAC was founded in 2002, a period of turmoil for Trinidad and Tobago, the country was recovering from an attempted coup and crime in Trinidad and Tobago was escalating; Avonelle Hector Joseph, tried to mentor several young persons through community interaction. But, in 2002 the country would experience 171 murders, it would be one too many for Avonelle Hector Joseph, she lose one a young man whom she mentored. For her and those close to her it was not enough to just bury the young man, something needed to happen.
A youth rally was held for the slain youth, she spoke to her mentor and co-founder of the organization Beverly Loobie-Alleyne who would challenge her to make a difference and do something about the crime, and the escalating death of our youth. She accepted the challenge and that night ten persons met at Progon Gardens, Maloney and began planning and etching an organization that would deal with social issues that our nation faced.
ITNAC has grown tremendously, our membership is 100% voluntary, but we boast a staff of doctors, nurses, technicians, manual labourers, administrators, carpenters, masons and such like committed members to our vision to making life better for those in need. Our mandate is to the people, and our work prospers due to the generous and continued support of organisations and individuals just like you.
Thank You for your support.
