Message From Minister On International Men’s Day

International Men’s Day is an annual international event celebrated every year on 19 November. Inaugurated in 1992 on February 7th by Thomas Oaster, the project of International Men’s Day was conceived one year earlier on 8 February 1991. The project was re-initialised in 1999 in Trinidad and Tobago.

International Men’s Day encourages men to teach the boys in their lives the values, character and responsibilities of being a man. Mahatma Gandhi said, “We must become the change we seek.”

It is only when we all, both men and women, lead by example that we will create a fair and safe society which allows everyone the opportunity to prosper.
