To accelerate the world’s transition to end poverty, inequality, and social injustice.
VMRTN strives to overcome poverty, social exclusion, and injustice by helping individuals and families in the vulnerable communities with a focus on visible minorities.
Visible Minority Re-Settlement and Training Network aims to cater to the communication and developmental needs of the nation’s ever-growing visible
minority groups in a unique, all-purpose setting, along the way, helping to fill the communication gaps among the sundry communities. Research has shown that the mainstream media are not doing justice to the needs of these groups, thereby leading to a lack of understanding between these groups and the mainstream population, and even among the communities themselves.
Furthermore, there is a need to give our native languages a pride of place in the community while helping our younger ones, especially foreign-born, to imbibe the richness, history, and value in our languages and cultures.
To this effect, we particularly aim to use the broadcast media of radio and television to further project the following social and capacity-building activities
that form part of our mandate: Senior and Elderly services; Newcomer Referral and Information; Supportive and Peer Counseling; Age/ Sex-appropriate social
programs; Drugs/ HIV / AIDS programs; Environmental Awareness; After-school program for kids; Crime Prevention; Single Mothers; etc.
