Student Union Keeping Pace With Technology

The “United Students” is the only Student Union Party at the University of Technology, Mauritius (UTM) that has a blog.  The blog has been unveiled yesterday, but its not 100% complete.  If I’m not mistaken its the only Student Union Party in both Universities in Mauritius that has a blog, because I didn’t see any blogs from the University of Mauritius Student Union Parties.

The blog is a platform between the party and the students of UTM.  It allows student to share their views and opinions, make suggestions to move towards a better campus.

The blog also has a section where it presents the candidates’ profiles and a small interview of them.  However, there’re only two candidates’ profiles and interviews for the moment, according to them more is to come real soon.

So as we can see, there’s atleast one Sudent Union party in the whole island of Mauritius that came up with the initiative of creating a blog.  I bet that there are many other guys who are not even aware of what is a blog LOL.

Terre De Paix – Mauritius

Terre de Paix is among one of the charitable organisations in Mauritius which is really in need of support.  Unlike some like “S.O.S Village” which does have all facilities they need or should i say above what they need LOL.

Terre de paix is located in Camp Créole, Albion.  They does get some kind of finance from the Government, but its only 30% of their yearly budget.  So they have to rely on sponsors and find out other ways to meet their budgetary needs.


Objectives of Fondation pour L’Enfance Terre de Paix as per Article 3 of its constitution

The objects of the Association shall be to:

1. Carry out child care activities in a secular and non-discriminatory way and in line with existing laws and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child;

2. Provide alternative care services, in the best interest of the child and in collaboration with biological parents and relatives whenever possible

(a) of a residential nature in ways conducive to the overall development of children, especially through the setting-up of
i. family-type structures for young children and
ii. youth homes.
iii. exit home

(b) of a non-residential nature through the setting-up of appropriate creative and cultural educational pre-school structures and appropriate creative and cultural educational, pre-vocational and vocational structures for children who are out of the mainstream system of education and training.

3. Engage in networking activities with other Non Governmental Organisations, the government and other stakeholders in the furtherance of the objects of the Association.

4. Raise and apply funds to meet the objects of the association; and

5. Provide training in child care through the development and implementation of appropriate programmes.

An article which appeared in L’Express newspaper recently.

The Bsc Tourism & Hospitality  Batch of UTM (University of Technology, Mauritius) will be organising a “Gala Dinner” or should i say “Charity Dinner” to raise funds to finance certain specific projects for Terre de Paix.  The dinner will be held in the first week of November 2008.
