The President of the Organization, Mr. Thomas Holmes in his address at the press conference, gave more insight into the organization’s plan.

Mr. Holmes said that cariMAN respects the views, opinions, habits and lifestyle of all individuals and groups as it promotes tolerance.

While it is a fact that women are usually the victim in gender based violence and men are normally the perpetrators, we have to accept that the rights of many males are violated.Men-for-a-diff-347x176
