Rhondall Feeles

Single Fathers Association of Trinidad & Tobago (SFATT)
Founder & President
Rhondall Feeles is a businessman and Social Activist in Trinidad and Tobago.  He is Founder and President of the Single Fathers Association T&T(SFATT)  and the father of 2 sons. He is currently the Vice President of the T&T Automotive Dealers Association.

In 2014 he was appointed by then Prime Minister the Hon. Kamla Persad Bissessar, to serve as a member of her Child Protection Task Force. Mr. Feeles and the SFATT for the last 7 years have partnered with key governmental, non governmental and private stakeholders to raise awareness, advocate for legislative reform, provide legal advice , offer family counsel and welfare support to families across Trinidad and Tobago. In 2015 Under his leadership, the Single Fathers Association collaborated with the Emancipation Support Committee and the Delegation of the European Union on the National Project: GENDER EQUALITY AND FATHERHOOD, a project geared toward the Empowerment of Fatherhood throughout the nation.

Since the launch of this project the organization has led initiatives to:

1) Research and provide statistics regards custody hearings at the family court.
2) Identify Cultural/Traditional Stereotypes and practices that affect the paternal rights of fathers.
3) Train 35 community outreach officers.
4) Build the capacity of the SFATT executive membership.
5) Form a Multi - Sector Committee with Government Stakeholders & NGOS
6) Launch its Single Fathers Association T&T mobile app available now for download on the Google PlayStore.

After years of advocacy Mr. Feeles and his Directors of SFATT were on the 12th January 2018 called before a parliamentary  Joint Select Committee to ventilate issues of inequity  faced by Single Fathers across the country.  Later that  Mr. Feeles  would have the joy of completing his Bachelors degree in Laws out of the University of London. To date He and his team  remain committed to working with and rendering support to parents struggling to find ways of forming parental partnerships after their intimate relationships have ended.
