AfrAsia Foundation launches its school for the underprivileged children

In line with its pledge to ‘Shape a World of Difference’, AfrAsia Bank has premiered another project with the creation of the AfrAsia school which is managed by its foundation. The launch was held on 18 September 2017 at the school premises in Curepipe.



The school will welcome over 30 vulnerable and underprivileged children of 3-5 years. A landmark achievement celebrating the 10th year of AfrAsia Bank,
the AfrAsia Foundation is modelled on UN Sustainable Development Goals 2030 and works towards its commitment to provide sustainable education to underprivileged children and to enhance their youth development to provide responsible citizens for the future benefit of Mauritius.
The school represents the AfrAsia Bank 'Different' footprint as the children after entry to pre-school will embark on a monitored journey that will take them through all stages of State education with tutoring and encouragement. The school will be expanded in stages to cater for up to 100 children with the pre- school education based on a combination of international methodology and Mauritian curriculum in cooperation with NGO Ti Rayons Soleil. Practical courses will also be offered to Parents. This long-term and sustainable project represents the AfrAsia Group's strong belief that education is the key to lifting the veil of poverty in Mauritius.
