The Corporate Sector
Republic of Mauritius
It is with great pleasure that we write to you this letter to request your company to organise 1-hour patriotic activities this year to celebrate the 47th independence day of Mauritius. This could include singing cultural songs or hosting in-house competitions and flag raising sessions among employees. This request is inline with YUVA’s (Youth United in Voluntary Action) ‘Patriotism Week’ initiative, which aims at increasing awareness of our heritage and instil national pride in citizens. Running from the 5th to 12th of March 2015, the Patriotism Week has been timed to end on the National Day of Mauritius.
One of the priorities of YUVA is to foster patriotism among citizens in order to develop the strength, courage and commitment needed to further develop Mauritius. Mauritians have a great deal to be proud about with locals having excelled in sport, academics, business and governance. We hope that Patriotism Week would motivate citizens to make a positive change in Mauritius as it is being launched to commemorate the 47th independence day of Mauritius. We challenge our nation as we pray and we hope that this patriotism drive will instil in us a love for country which in essence is a love for self and a love for each other.
Patriotism Week is set to include the launch of a national essay competition, national flag giveaways as well as the launch of the ‘Flag In Every Home’ campaign. YUVA will launch a campaign urging citizens to wear the national colours. Patriotism Week would also include the unveiling of planned signage of the motto “Together We Aspire, Together We Achieve,” which will be positioned on several strategic locations in the national highway.

- National Essay Competition (Project leader: Youdish Bhunjun, 57719548)
