Everything we do at YUVA has just one goal: the sustained well-being of children and young people, especially the most vulnerable. We work with families, communities, and partners to ensure that children and young people enjoy good health, are educated for life, experience the love of parents and their surroundings, and are cared for, protected, and participating. More importantly, we serve all children and young people – regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender.

Our programmes focus on four key outcomes: for children and young people of Mauritius to have access to:
  1. Quality Education,
  2. Good Health,
  3. Empowerment, and
  4. Employment.


Because they're all interconnected and essential to achieving the big goal: helping to bring a brighter future for the country.

Donate & Make a Difference!

You may choose to donate to one of our primary field operations or make a general unearmarked donation. These unearmarked donations are essential to enable us to help children and young people in desperate need, but for whom it can be challenging to raise funds as their plight is no longer in the news.

YUVA. Youth United in Voluntary Action

Founded in 2015, YUVA started as a group of enthusiastic individuals. Today, it has mobilised thousands of young people to create a better future for the children and youth of Mauritius and India. At the heart of YUVA’s duty lies the conviction that the collective destinies of the human race are bound together.

YUVA has so far implemented numerous projects and initiatives, such as providing educational aid to underprivileged children in Mauritius, campaigning for sanitation and hygiene rights in India, and helping local communities build better livelihoods. YUVA also strives to promote the importance of civic responsibility by engaging citizens in participatory decision-making. Through its collaborations with various organisations, YUVA strives to ensure that the people of Mauritius and India are empowered to shape their own future.

Today, YUVA is Mauritius’s and India’s largest and most active youth-led organisation.
