Board of Trustees
Mrs. Theresa Trinidad is our Founder Trustee and has been the driving force behind the setting up COOJ. In order to fulfill the dying wish of her only child, Patricia, she invested all her energies and resources into keeping her memory alive. Having worked with the Reserve Bank of India for about 30 years, all her financial skills came as an asset.
Dr. Peter Castelino, Managing Trustee, is a consultant psychiatrist and past president of the Psychiatric Society of Goa and the recipient of the Bagadia award from the Indian Psychiatric Society. It is his constant belief that every person regardless of the level of ability can live to their optimum potential if the right opportunities and environments are provided.
Mr. Romuald Fernandes, Treasurer, has vast experience working as the marine superintendent (ship building) for Wallem Ship Management Inc. based in Hong Kong. His all-time enthusiasm is a great motivator and his eye for detail keeps our balances in check.
