Corporate Sustainability Fondation CIEL Nouveau Regard - projects

  • ACTogether

    ACTogether.mu is the only web portal offering information on social works and actions in Mauritius and Rodrigues. After 10 years, the portal has moved towards a larger public offering more services. With more than hundred NGOs listed, financers, professional tools and citizens’ actions, actogether.mu is the reference for social actions.

    It offers constant news of the NGOs through two newsletters every month to 3,500 persons, on its Facebook page, and thanks to its collaboration with Radio One and L’Express newspaper.

    With the refurbished version launched in December 2016, citizens are encouraged to get involved, help, participate, recycle, donate with the new “Citoyens” page dedicated to them.

    In addition, ACTogether.mu organises a series of activities yearly to bring NGOs “together” and enhance their capacities and visibilities, among which:

    • The “Marché de Noël Solidaire”, whose main objectives are to gather all the NGOs around a common project, help them improve the quality of their craft products, bring capacity building and help them in raising funds.
    • ACTogether.mu also holds a stand at the yearly “Mauritius International University and Career Expo” at Pailles. In collaboration with NGOs, social workers and volunteers, the stand offers the opportunity to those who want to start a career in the social field or to join local NGOs.
    • ACTogether.mu also holds “ACTogether ProWorkshops” where professionals from private sector give effective training on various themes such as Human Resource Management.
  • Focus projects

As at end 2016, 100 students had passed and almost 80% of them are today professionally active. FCNR invested MUR 5.5M in this project.
