About Me:
I am a freelance trainer in literacy (French and English) and work mostly with youngsters who have been out of the mainstream education system and who wish to join the hotel industry in Mauritius. Through my classes i contribute to make them employable.I have a Diploma in Community Services Work. Also, I am an autodidact artist who help in empowerment programs for children and young adults.
My dream:
My first job was as a "Disability empowerment officer" for psychologically distressed adults and children. The word EMPOWERMENT has been very impactful in my life and i believe in it. My dream is to be able to effectively empower the people i meet so as to give them back their power. Everybody can have a disability,anything that slave you renders you disabled. Being poor is a disability as well as being rich...so for me empowerment is the key to truly bring a change to the life of someone.
I'm proud of:
Being a positive and strong person. To be selfless and compassionate at all times.
What do I want to do to spread Community Life Competence?
Facilitate Community Life Competence in my community, Share about Community Life Competence with potential partners; friends; colleagues, I want to apply SALT in my own life (S: Stimulate; Support; A: Appreciate; L: Listen; Learn; Link; T: Transfer; Team), I want to share my experience on my blog in Ning
To subscribe to our newsletter, please click here: http://eepurl.com/-xLWj and/or choose "yes" below.
The small secretariat of the Constellation also needs help. Do you want to help? I want to:
Translate, Writing skills, Develop blended learning, online facilitation, Knowledge Management

The human and learning experience

As the Visual Development team's journey in Poste Lafayette comes to a closure, as a SALTy individual I cannot but do my very own after experience reflection (AER). For sure my words will not do justice to this unique experience because certain things cannot be described but are just engraved deep within the heart.

What did I appreciate?

I loved the authenticity of my…

As you open your eyes, you see beyond…

Beyond the hollow of empty eyes, the promise of a dream

Beyond the veil of the weary tears, the birth of a smile


As you open your eyes, you see above…

Above the fall of the gloom, the blossom of open arms

Above the fly of faded flowers, the hope for better days…

David, Jessica and little baby Clara have reached Mauritius on Wednesday the 14th of June 2017.They have been warmly welcomed by the inhabitants of Poste Lafayette. The team started their field work the very next day and I am glad to be sharing the experience with them. So many things amazed me among which how little Clara interacted with the inhabitants. It was beautiful to witness how a child could connect people. I am proud to say that I now know what is a…


Two pinches of SALT for a holistic approach to literacy classes in Mauritius

Posted on April 26, 2017 at 11:00am 2 Comments

It has been almost two months now since I have been working as a trainer for youngsters wishing to work in hotels in Mauritius. Youngsters between the age of 16 to 25 who are mostly from vulnerable groups and poverty pockets and who sadly have been out of mainstream education system a bit too early. So far, my experiences as an educator/trainer have been limited to doing creative workshops and facilitating for A.B.A (Applied Behavior Analysis) which is one of the approaches contributing to…
