But these claims often obscure the dark realities of where and how these products were made—on factory farms that systematically condemn animals to lives of extreme confinement, stress, pain, and even torture. NGOs provide vital assistance to endangered species and promote responsible management of Mauritius’ diverse ecosystems.

Finance is one of the most popular and sought-after career paths. With the attractive salaries and faster career growth opportunities it offers, the finance field does not lack aspiring professionals. Similarly, there is no lack of finance job openings in the private or public sector.

Their job is an extension of their passion rather than just a way to earn money. Generations Y and Z notably hold a strong social conscience, having grown with the internet, a tool that allowed them access to understand and societal issues on a global scale. Unlike the older generations’ traditional belief to give back to society after reaching a certain level of wealth and a strong position of financial security, the younger generations believe in contributing towards society’s wellbeing through their work.
