WIN was founded in May 2006 by 6 key organisations: Soroptimist International Ipsae –Rose Hill, Soroptimist International – Port Louis, Junior Chamber International Mauritius and Curepipe, the Association Mauricienne des Femmes Chefs d’Entreprise and the United Nations Development Programme of Mauritius.

These organisations signed an MOU for 3 years to form a network with the prime objective of empowering women in Mauritius, inspired by article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights: “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights

2009 – Men Against Violence

WIN (Women in Network) has come a long way since its conception in 2006, and under one of its four objectives MAV (Men Against Violence) was created in 2009.

With the collaborataion of a founder member JCI Curepipe (Junior Chamber International Curepipe), The Ministry of Gender Equality and the British High Commision, MAV is now in a position to launch a campaign against gender based violence.

Domestic violence, gender based violence, call it what we want, the results are the same, someone, somewhere is being beaten up, and this someone is usually a woman.  Just in the time it takes for us to read through this text hundreds of women around the world will be beaten so badly, they will die.
