Most people in Mauritius would agree that people drive very dangerously here. No matter where you are headed, your next stop might just happen to be Heaven’s Gate. Some drive like there’s no tomorrow, while others have to pass an exam of life and death. We never know if we’re safe on the road and if we’ll return home alive or not.Continue reading “What Do You Do With The Time You Save From Reckless Driving?”
In line with its anti-poverty mission, YUVA Baie du Tombeau, in collaboration of YUVA District of Pamplemousses, proceeded with the distribution of clothes to 50 children between 4 to 12 years old, who attended a “Talk on Behaviour and Road Safety Issues”, organised by the Mauritius Police Force at the Youth Centre Cite Florida at Baie du Tombeau.
While the United Nations’ (UN) Universal Children’s Day, which was established in 1954, promotes international togetherness and awareness among children worldwide and which also works towards improving children’s welfare, there still are children that are nearly forgotten and who are living in deplorable conditions.
YUVA came forward and went door-to-door to meet these children and their families and distribute clothes. Even YUVAN who participated in this initiative can never forget the smiles of those children while they had the clothes in their hands. A simple gesture made a big impact.
