Volunteer Mauritius

Mauritius, with its population of some 1,284,264, is located off the southeast coast of Madagascar within the Indian Ocean and in many respects is a paradise. Its has a buoyant tourist industry and rapidly developing financial and industrial sectors.

However these rapid changes have put strains on the traditional way of island life with the UN recently reporting "Pockets of poverty remain, and child abuse and violence against women, sexual exploitation, increasing drug and alcohol dependency among young people and the exclusion of children with disabilities all are cause of concern."

Nevertheless Mauritius in 80th place out of 186 countries and territories in 2013 when ranked in terms of life expectancy, literacy, access to knowledge and the living standards of a country placing it firmly in the top half of the global scale and, unless you know where to look, you may never seen the problems.

Most volunteer work in Mauritius focuses on conservation and preservation projects with organisations becoming increasingly concerns at man's impact on the environment. (Remember Mauritius was the only home of the Dodo; a bird which became extinct within 80 years of man's arrival.) Other volunteer work opportunities are available working with some of the island's orphaned children and helping disadvantaged families access education and health care provision.
