Purpose

To develop the communication skills of the youngsters of Residence La Chaux, Mauritius


Overview

Residence La Chaux was seriously impacted by the Wakashio Oil Spill. Our needs analysis with community leaders showed us that whilst adults benefitted from governmental programmes, the youth needed up-skilling to thrive. They needed help with communication skills. We therefore devised a series of training to improve their communications skills, such as a mock interview and a theatre training.


Results

The communication skills of the participants improved greatly and we saw them become more confident.


Recommendations

To provide opportunities, such as internships, whereby their will be able to put their skills into practice
