The Caribbean Coalition for the Abolition of Corporal Punishment of Children (CCACPC) aims to speed the prohibition and elimination of corporal punishment in Caribbean states, overseas departments, territories and dependencies (“states and territories”), including by:
- building a strong regional movement for prohibition and elimination which will increase visibility of the issue
- advocating directly on the issue to governments and parliaments of states and territories
- collaborating with UNICEF and other UN agencies, CARICOM and other regional organisations, international and national NGOs, national human rights institutions and others
- supporting the development and work of national campaigns for prohibition.
CCACPC works in the states of Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago and the overseas departments, territories and dependencies of Anguilla, Aruba, Bermuda, Bonaire, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Curaçao, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Montserrat, Puerto Rico, Saba, St Barthelemy, St Eustatius, St Maarten, St Martin, Turks and Caicos Islands and US Virgin Islands.
CCACPC is supported by the Global Initiative to End All Corporal Punishment of Children.
