About Us

History

The history of this orgnaization dictates that in 1987, under the stewardship of then Prime Mnister Arthur Napoleon Raymond Robinson, a decision was taken to institutionalize the self help concept through the formation of the National Commission For Self Help Ltd. This is a test a second test ​ Mr. Robinson said the then government wanted "to promote an entrepreneurial spirit among our citizens making them active agents in the economic life of the nation, rather than passive dependents of the State and victims of trends and forces beyond their control....the National Commission For Self Help is a vital cog in the machinery of the State to provide services necessary in order to fulfill the rich potential of our people throughout the length and breadth o Trinidad and Tobago." ​ Today, twenty six years later the National Commission For Self Help Ltd has managed to carve a niche in the arena of several State Agencies with parallel functions.
