December is traditionally the time of the year to unwind and spend some well-deserved quality time with our loved ones. Nonetheless, during the festive period, the Mauritius teams did not forget that a large part of their community was still struggling.

The ABC Committee has at heart to help the less fortunate and partnered with local NGOs actively working to help the vulnerable people within our local communities.

We’re pleased to share below the list of projects that IQ-EQ Mauritius has contributed in 2021. We believe our support will make a difference and help improve the lives of the beneficiaries.

Foodwise fights against food waste and food insecurity in Mauritius by helping businesses repurpose their unsold goods to help people in need.

 

 

Following the resurgence of local Covid cases within the community in March, we had to review our plans and the flag raising ceremony and distribution of napolitaines were cancelled. 

To avoid wastage, we decided to donate to FoodWise Mauritius. 

600 red, blue, yellow, and green branded napolitaines were distributed to underprivileged kids on Independence Day.
