Everything we do 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: education, health, empowerment and employment. Why these four? Because they’re all interconnected and essential to achieving the big goal: helping to break the cycle of poverty.
324 families falling under the poverty line.
Registered in February 2015, YUVA started as a group of enthusiastic individuals, and today it has mobilised thousands of young people with a simple aim of creating a better future for children and youth of Mauritius. At the heart of YUVA’s duty lies the conviction that the collective destinies of the human race are bound together.
YUVA is focused on making a long-term impact by helping children and young people living in poverty, or not being able to have access to basics.
We have a bold vision: ensuring Quality Education, Good Health, Empowerment and Employment for young people through our programmes so we can achieve the goal of breaking the cycle of poverty and to ensure a bright future of children and young people of Mauritius. Period.
TWO things: Breaking the cycle of poverty. Ensuring a bright future. PERIOD.
Our values are based on the assumption that leadership for our generation, is not a singular concept, but embodies the challenge of bringing together people from diverse fields and schools of thought. We have the collective challenge of building leadership that can be reflected within our communities as much as in our policies.
