Participants give the children of a neglected community an opportunity to draw from English Education. The Kindergarten teaching option is a wonderful chance for participants to introduce learning through games and a lot of fun. English is not part of the syllabus and the repercussions of not being able to communicate in a global language, has taken its toll on the current youth and Mauritius is saddled with a massive issue wherein only 54% of youth complete an educational program in schools or colleges, actually complete their induction without dropping out of the educational system currently present in Mauritius.
