Campaign description

As the academic year phases out, Volunteer Mauritius, in close collaboration with the Ministry of Youth and Sports, is transforming the Youth Centres across the island into a book exchange platform for both school textbooks and reading and reference books.

We personally invite each Mauritian, school goers and adults, who so wishes, to deposit in any one of the Youth Centres closest to them, school textbooks, reading and reference books that they wish to make available to other persons who may need them. In the same breath, we invite all Mauritians to visit youth centers across the island during business hours to select and take away any of the available reading materials for their own use free of any charge.

We believe that a book is a great gift to share. It helps to promote a healthy way of life, sound knowledge and attitudes. We also believe that donating books that we do not need any more is a profound gesture contributing to the EDUCATION of one and all and to our Nation-Building.

The Ministry of Youth has 28 youth centers across the island. Business hours are from 09.00 to 15.00 on working days.

For more information on the activities of Volunteer Mauritius contact us at the Floreal Youth Centre on 6987019 (office hours) or on 57707386 (office hours off) or send an email to [email protected].

We are also available on facebook/volunteer mauritius.
This initiative will last up to the end of January.
