In its 2009 budget, the Mauritian Government has made the CSR contribution by company mandatory.
As the representative of the Export Sector in Mauritius, MEXA believes that it is our responsibility to contribute to the society and work towards the social enhancement of the country.
In line with the above, MEXA has set up the MEXA CSR Fund Ltd last year whereby our members contribute part of their fund into a collective exporter’s fund which is directed to a CSR project accredited by the National CSR Committee.
For its first year of existence, the MEXA CSR Fund Ltd has obtained approximately Rs. 1 million for the past year ending June 2011. This fund has been allocated to two highly laudable projects namely:
Amélioration des projets EVEIL des tout-petits Et Gratitude à Roche Bois
It provides lunch to approx 50 vulnerable children attending Emmanuel Anquetil Government School as well as an educational programme to children from 2 ½ to 4 years old from vulnerable groups
La Fondation pour la Formation
It aims at using football as a tool for social integration of vulnerable groups, to inculcate a good life hygiene, values, morals and education to vulnerable groups in order to make them better citizens thus contributing to the fight against poverty
