YUVA is committed to bettering the lives of all Mauritians, more importantly of most vulnerable citizens including children and young people.
However, YUVA believes that to attain the organisation’s vision we need to have collaborative actions. A pioneering step in its own, YUVA has donated, in the last one month, 251 boxes of new and used cloth items to NGOs around the island with the intent to support the NGOs in organising Christmas and New Year events for their beneficiaries.
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.
