History

Rainbow Rescue is a charitable organization, which was formed out of a deep concern for the increasing number of children who are being forced to live on the streets of our cities, due to poverty, a breakdown in family life and/or social services or abuse. Our focus is male children who, if left alone are likely to develop negative lifestyles.

Our objectives are to rehabilitate and educate at primary, secondary and vocational levels. This would prepare them for gainful employment and take their rightful place in society as productive, law abiding citizens. At present we are supporting fourteen boys ages ten to eighteen.

We are a body which depends largely upon the kindness of private citizens, companies, and our own resourcefulness in order to continue our work.

Rainbow Rescue was incorporated on November 16th, 1999 under the companies Act, 1995 of Trinidad and Tobago, chartered by and under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Social Development. We are also registered as a charitable body with the Ministry of Finance and licensed with the Children’s Authority of Trinidad and Tobago.
