YUVA Launched First Event at Petit Raffray to Battle Unemployment

YUVA, in close collaboration with the Human Resource Development Council (HRDC), organised a first event at Petit Raffray Social Welfare Centre yesterday morning.

This event is in-line with YUVA’s goal to reduce unemployment among young people in Mauritius.

At the event yesterday, around 200 unemployed young people of the Riviere Du Rempart District registered for the National Skills Development Programme for training in technical skills that are in high demand. The youngsters’ education level varied from form III to HSC.

The professional courses being offered to the young people are in different sectors, mainly Tourism & Hospitality, Construction, ICT and Nursing. The duration of the courses may vary from 6-12 months.

Apart from getting a free professional course, every participant would also be receiving a monthly stipend of Rs 6,000.

We at YUVA are proud to bring our brick to contribute in reducing unemployment in Mauritius.

YUVA President Krishna Athal said in his speech yesterday, “Reducing unemployment should be a top priority for every NGO in Mauritius nowadays. If our youngsters can’t secure a better future, they will frustrate and get involved into outlaws. After this first event, YUVA will organise a similar gathering at Lallmatie next month, and this will continue until we cover all the 9 districts of the country.”
