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.
ENL Foundation created Bazart Kreasion to train unemployed women living in the Moka region for financial autonomy. We converted an old sugar estate house into a workshop where they learned to upcycle used paper and other types of craftsmanship. We also helped them find a market for their products and generate revenue.
Nourezo is a digital market place created by ENL during the COVID-19 pandemic to provide independent tradesmen and micro-entrepreneurs with a means to be visible to customers and to quickly recover from the impact of the pandemic. The initiative was funded out of a solidarity fund to which ENL employees contributed voluntarily.
The NGO community does a fantastic job working for a more inclusive society, and often with very little means. By creating the WeVolunteer program sought to encourage ENL employees to give back to society, and give the NGO community access to professional skills which would otherwise be out of their reach.
We created the Aprann program to help individuals who are uneducated, untrained or who wish to take up a new job, to find employment. The program was initially funded by HSBC Mauritius and benefitted more than 300 individuals aged between 16 and 55 years.
We implemented our Leave No One Behind program over three years during which we helped some 385 families build capacity and start a small business. In addition to training, coaching and guidance, we provided them with seed capital to get started. The initiative was supported by the European Union.
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.
