JCI Curepipe’s ACF project – Anou Kompren Nu Societé

15 Jul

The JCI Curepipe neighbourhood watch campaign is a key project for our local organisation. The scourge of drugs and its impact on our youngsters is devastating and is becoming more  deadly. Around 29.5 million people globally suffer from drug use disorders as per the World Drug Report 2017 by United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). In 2015, about a quarter of a billion people used drugs, 0.6 per cent of the global adult population were engaged in problematic use and suffered from drug use disorders, including dependence.

Drug is the main social problem affecting our Mauritian society since years. JCI Curepipe aims to eradicate this social problem in one of the most affected districts and regions in Mauritius. To successfully conduct the project, JCI Curepipe sought the collaboration of many stakeholders.

Each of our stakeholders are unique in terms of their intervention. We all decided to conduct the ‘Neigbourhood Campaigns’ and an inspiring talk to create awareness and educate the communities.

Our first neighbourhood session was organized at Shri Radha Krishna Mandiram on the 9th May. The program started with an introduction from Mr. Atma Chiniah who was the organizer of the event and the welcome address from Local President Yudhish Rohee.

The Neighbourhood session was then conducted by Mrs. Padma Bhugobaun from the Crime Prevent Unit. The law issues and preventive measures were presented by the project director Sheren Govinden and Edley Jaymangal from the Centre de Solidarité.

It is to be noted that 45 people were registered for the session. The presence of Honourable Stephan Toussaint, Ministry of Youth and Sports, it is worth mentioning that he expressed his appreciation for this workshop.

We shall now be conducting such sessions in other regions in Curepipe.
