TTTI is the Trinidad and Tobago chapter of Transparency International (TI), the global civil society organisation leading the fight against corruption.
Our vision is TI's vision: a world in which government, politics, business, civil society and the daily lives of people are free of corruption.
Our mission is to work towards a country and region that are free of corruption.
Along with TI's more than 90 other locally established national chapters and chapters-in-formation and in close collaboration with TI's International Secretariat in Berlin, Germany, we work in a non-confrontational way with relevant players from government, civil society, business and the media to reduce corruption and foster good governance by raising awareness, stimulating action and contributing to the reform of systems, institutions and laws.
Launched in 1998, we are a non-profit company registered under the Trinidad and Tobago Companies Act, 1995 and governed by a Board of Directors elected by our members, both individual and corporate.
We manage our own affairs within the framework of TI's Vision, Values and Guiding Principles.
We are therefore a non-governmental and politically non-partisan organisation.
We do not investigate individual cases, 'name names', confront individuals or authorities in suspected cases of corruption or comment on cases of corruption before they reach the public domain.
We benefit from the considerable skills, tools, experience and expertise in fighting corruption acquired by TI and its national chapters and strive to make our own contributions to this storehouse of resources.
