In spite of the prevalence of domestic violence, I cannot underscore how important the work of this organisation truly is. Led by a small team of committed directors (one of whom I know personally), I have no doubt of O.A.B.I.'s ability to further educate the public on domestic violence, and continue to give assistance and therapy to the people who need it.
O.A.B.I.: Organization for Abused and Battered Individuals is a wonderful international agency operated by
Sherna Benjamin Founder/President. O.A.B.I seeks to educated, end and eradicate all forms of human abuse. There is not a more worthy organization fighting for this cause than the Organization for Abused and Battered Individuals.

As a member of OABI, i feel tremendously blessed to be part of a hard working,caring and out going team. The founder Ms. S. Alexander Benjamin is a wonderful lady, very down to earth and would go out of her way to help others. With a leader like her, the org. has a high possibility of succeeding, not only in the Caribbean but internationally. I am one of the youth leaders for OABI and the support we receive from the elder members is just totally awesome . Their spirit is so positive and so willing it just boosts us to do more every chance we get. Even though i reside a little further from the other members i do not feel excluded. I would encourage any one who has a heart for abused of just people in need to contact us and become a volunteer. You would meet people that would keep your hearts warm, it is really an eye opener ! :) :D
This wonderful organisation is a friend to the abused and is like a confidant who does not cast judgment. It warms my heart to see victims of abuse feel like they're taking back control of their lives in a safe and productive environment which offers healing and rehabilitation from previous traumas. They care. They really do care. God bless them dearly.
It's with great pleasure that I not only discovered the beautiful work of O.A.B.I, but also the beautiful people. I was magnetized by the depth of their desire to help create meaningful change in the world. While the subject of abuse is a challenging one, O.A.B.I are a towering presence among those that skirt the issue of such taboos, and is an immensely eloquent and vocal in their attempts to speak out on behalf of the voiceless while delivering educational and heartfelt messages that inspires change. They are community driven, yet operate on a global platform, ensuring the fight against this evil plague in our society is one which all can participate in.
A grassroots organization with a structure providing assistance to women and girls as they educate about abuse prevention, they also assist with cases of poverty. Their selflessness, dedication and perseverance is too be greatly admired, encouraged and supported. They continue to give hope to those who need it the most and most times such persons are the depressed and afflicted.
I must say that this organization is doing a great job in the area of educating persons about domestic violence and abuse the information which they have shared helped me greatly and I encourage all to support them to continue to educate others about this issue.

O.A.B.I is an organization that provides hope to people who need it the most.Their efforts to connect communities and donors while helping the underprivileged has it's challenges, but it certainly makes a difference in the lives of individuals in need.
With a passion to thrive O.A.B.I. have crossed many hurdles and continue to rise above the Social and Economic road blocks.
I pray O.A.B.I. continue to do the outstanding job they are doing in schools and communities as well as the assistance and education to hundreds of girls, women and children. Keep up the excellent work!
Compassionate persons ready & willing to go the extra mile to make T & T a better place. By publicly educating citizens about the different types of abuse and to ensure support is provided for those in need. But most of all they are a beacon of HOPE.
Excellent organisation with passionate people. The dedication that I have seen from the persons involved is heart touching. It is great to see people spending their time to help others, especially in Trinidad & Tobago where there are many cases of abuse.
Thank you for providing such an outstanding support to the victims overseas.
