The Credo Foundation for Justice was established by members of the Holy Faith Sisters and partners in 1993. It was a response to ‘a world that is becoming progressively more unjust, more exploitative of the powerless of the earth and more deaf to the cry of the poor.’
Inspired by the God-given dignity and equality of every human being, and informed by the Constitution of Trinidad and Tobago, we envision a nation where all people have the opportunity to exercise their rights and responsibilities, to reach their full potential and to live life to the full.
