Welcome to the website of the Ministry of National Mobilization, Social Development, Family, Gender Affairs, Persons with Disability and Youth. Our Mission: To engage in social transformation through social empowerment, social protection and justice, using national mobilization, social development and Youth

Vincentians and other persons living in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines have been called upon to join the campaign to condemn all acts of violence.

During NBC’s Views on Issues Programme on Sunday 10th August, which looked at the topic “Tackling The Scourge Of Domestic Abuse”, Polly Oliver, Director of Gender Affairs said that violence against women is one of the most significant barriers to development.

Winfield Abbott-Tannis, Social Activist added that everyone has a role to play to eradicate the problem of Domestic Violence in the society.

Mr. Abbott- Tannis’ point was also reiterated by Reverend Adolph Davis, Methodist Minister here in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. Reverend Davis also stressed the need for persons to engage in mediation and dispute resolution to settle their differences, instead of resorting to violence.

Delivering a Sermon at the Calliaqua Methodist Church on Sunday, Reverend Davis said that it is evident that some individuals are not equipped with the skills required to resolve disputes, but he said that it is important that mechanisms for mediation and reconciliation be developed in order to resolve disputes.
