NCPD announces the launch of its new book One of a Kind. The Launch will be held on Thursday May 14, 2015 at 5 p.m. at the National Library and Information System Authority (NALIS), Hart and Abercromby Streets, Port of Spain. Guests are asked to be seated by 4.45 p.m. The book documents the history and work of the National Centre for Persons with Disabilities as a leading agency serving the sector of people with disabilities in Trinidad & Tobago and the wider Caribbean Sub-Region. It was produced in honour of the Centre's 50th Anniversary which it celebrated on December 5, 2014. The Centre looks forward to the impact that this book will have in documenting the progress of national service to the sector of people with disabilities. As such, it is very pleased to launch One of a Kind in this quarter.
