« A better future is possible » is possible for Mauritian children in care

ISS has successfully carried out its follow-up mission of 'A better future is possible' project aiming to promote the right of children living in residential care to grow up in a family setting. ISS team has accompanied the Mauritian team of trainers (trained in May 2015) in their activities and worked with them to fine-tune and reinforce the training delivered to residential care staff.


The Ministry in charge of Child Welfare ( Ministry Of Gender Equality, Child Development and Family Welfare) requested an official meeting with ISS to learn about promising practices in order to improve alternative care opportunities in Mauritius with a focus on Foster Care.


ISS looks forward to continue accompanying the Mauritian Ministry of Gender and Equality in its efforts to enhance the rights and well-being of children without parental care.
