Main aim of the charity
The Main aim of my charitable cause is to prove and to demonstrate that life do not stop because of a wheelchair or because we do have difficulties life and that sports can be the solution to all those challenging situation.
How the employee got involved and why
I started since 2014, in a living quarters called “SOS VILLAGE”, where reside children without parents or abandoned children. They were placed in recomposed family. I started there because I feel that those children need really to be guided and motivated in all sense. I try to show them that sports can be a solution and a way to focus their lives and above all not to give up even the trip were full of obstacles. We used to make them play and doing some activities and ending with a gathering together.
What work does the employee do for charity?
Looking far back in my life, where I come from after my accident and how many difficulties/ obstacles I have surmounted I realized how much sport was and is an important part of my life and how it has not only become essential for my personal achievement as a sportsman but also as an adult, a parent and a good citizen.
In Mauritius being handicapped was still consider as a disgrace. A handicapped person was not given so much consideration especially the unfavorable ones.
I feel it very unjust to keep so much benefits and experience for myself. So, I decided to make it my fight, “To enhancement and make the promotion of sports among the youth and especially handicapped persons”.
I used to visit some special institutions and schools to meet the children and explain them through exposes, causeries, video viewing, posters….etc, why they should never give up? Using my own experience of life to motivate and guide them. Showing them that sports can be the answer to get out of their routine way of life and that not only this will give them a healthy life style but also discover some hidden talents among the new generation.
