Our training and capacity building programs enable the communities we work with to grow in self-confidence, learn ways to earn a living, and access the means to start and progress along the path of self-definition and financial autonomy. We thus give shape to ENL's commitment to promote shared and inclusive growth, laying special emphasis on the empowerment of women as agents of positive and sustainable change.
Leave No One Behind is an integrated social inclusion and economic empowerment program, designed and implemented by ENL Foundation over three years with financial support from the European Union. The initiative benefitted 345 families who learned to produce their own eggs and vegetables in their backyards, run a community farm to generate income, start micro-businesses, and improve their ability to learn.
Helios Eyewear, a brand developed by Plastinax Austral for the Mauritian market, is known for its eco-conscientiousness. One of its more lasting initiatives has been to recycle PET bottles to produce frames for sunglasses. It takes an average of 5 one-litre bottles to produce 1 pair of sunglasses. We distributed 2,000 pairs of these polarised sunglasses to the fisher community across Mauritius.
Ascencia malls stand in favour of circularity and they put their commitment in action. They are implementing a strategy that aims to cut the volume of wet and solid wastes generated by their tenants by 50% in 2022. To date, 70% of wastes generated in the 7 malls are sorted at source and 20% is recycled where as the malls of Bagatelle and Bo'Valon recycle up to 40% of their waste water.
Moka has installed voluntary sorted waste drop-off points across the city to encourage its residents to sort the solid wastes they generate and to dispose of them responsibly.
The drop-off bins are of equipped with sensors that notify the service provider when they are full. This ensures efficiency in collection and disposal.
We are grateful for the support and funding extended to us by our local and international partners. Their trust enables us to reach a larger population and to achieve greater positive impact.
