The “Moral and Civic Education” programme for secondary schools was successfully launched by YUVA on Monday, 14 January 2019. The development training took place at Patten College (Girls) and our first batch has commenced with around 35 ambitious students of Grade 9.
The moral and civic education is an important component which targets at fostering teenagers’ positive values and attitudes through the learning and teaching of several key learning subjects. The programme also aims at developing students’ ability to identify the values entrenched and help them make a reasonable judgement on different issues that they may face at a certain point in life.
The ‘Students Leadership Programme’ for secondary schools was successfully launched by YUVA on Monday, 14 January 2019. The development training took place at Patten College Girls and our first batch commenced with around 30 ambitious students of Grade 10.
We, at YUVA, believe that every individual has leadership potentials and that their particular gifts, talents, and skills can be enhanced through education, training, and development. Leadership is a process, not a position. Therefore, YUVA has introduced this program with a broad goal to facilitate a culture of engaged and ethical leadership among youngsters.
Family protection is an important aspect in any society because the family is a small unit and families make up the society. Happiness and peace including safety are determinants of a healthy society. In Mauritius, Ministry of Gender Equality, Child Development and Family Welfare is responsible for family protection including gender-based violence, domestic violence, child abuse, elderly abuse, family conflict and conflict among neighbours. Police Family Protection Unit (PFPU) was set up in 1994 with the aim of providing specific services to vulnerable in Mauritius. PFPU is decentralized on a regional basis with a special policing approach for its operation with some underlying principles such as welcoming phase, active listening, individualism, non-judgmental attitude, freedom of decision and confidentiality.
