Motto and Logo
Vision on Mission’s motto is “Doing it the Right Way is the Better Way!”
The logo of Vision on Mission depicts two men in front of the Trinidad and Tobago flag with a rising sun in the background. One man has chains on his wrists and is kneeling. The other man is standing, with a hand outstretched to the kneeling man.
This illustration represents the man who is on his knees is asking for a second chance and the man who is standing is freeing him from his chains, thus, granting him the second chance.
In the background, the flag represents Trinidad and Tobago and the rising sun represents our beloved country slowly but surely embracing the philosophy of Restorative Justice.
About Vision on Mission
Vision On Mission is a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) that has been in existence since 1995 and was incorporated on the 17th August, 2001 under the Trinidad & Tobago Companies (1995) Act.
Vision On Mission is non-denominational with responsibility for the reintegration and rehabilitation of prisoners, ex-offenders, deportees/returning nationals, delinquent youth and socially displaced persons.
The Founder and Executive President, Mr. Wayne Chance, founded Vision On Mission in 1995 within the Port-of-Spain prison during his incarceration. Mr. Chance recognized the steadily increasing population of young men within the prison system. Mr. Chance, himself, who was also incarcerated at the tender age of nineteen, hails from the community of Arima, Trinidad, W.I., and from a family of seven as the eldest child.
