Purpose

The project will aim to provide development and employment opportunities to all Mauritian inhabitants, especially those affected by COVID-19 challenges by organising a Post COVID-19 Job Fair starting with the area of Beau-Bassin/Rose-Hill.


Overview

The objective is to provide Mauritian citizens who have lost their jobs during COVID-19, an opportunity to secure employment again. A special Focus will be to redirect those in deeply affected areas (Tourism, Travel, Construction..) to other job domains. Following our needs analysis, the training and coaching to be provided can be viewed in terms of: professional training, vocational training and preparatory programs to win a new job.

The project is in line with the JCI RISE Initiative titled ‘Workforce Empowerment’. The objective is to engage and empower the workforce through effective leadership and communication. The following SDGs are involved: 1, 4 & 8.


Results

We started the project by holding meetings with our potential stakeholders and everyone we contacted were happy to collaborate, firmly believing and sharing the vision of this project. They shared their insights into the field and asissted us in preparing the survey form and shared with their list of contacts as well as ours. More than 1000 candidates have expressed their interest to participate in this project.
We are now preparing for the trainings to be given to those who would like one and also working on holding the Job Fair event by preparing a shortlist of venues and recruiters willing to participate. Event date: 20.11.2021
