Message of President
Founded in early 2014 by a group of young and dynamic students and professionals under the guidance of the Rotary Club of Mahebourg. Fulfilling all administrative procedure, the club was officially chartered on 18th of Aug 2014, following which we have inducted and pinned our fellow Founder Members. Today, the Rotaract Club Mahebourg, now a partner club with Rotary Club Mahebourg, is one of the youth programs organization in the southern of Mauritius. We are a non-profit organization where members are volunteers without financial compensation.
The goal of the club's programs is for young people (both students, aspiring professionals, and on field professionals) to polish their leadership skills, serve the community, broaden their international perspective, and seize the opportunity to network and meet people which they are able to achieve through a series of workshops, seminars, community service projects (both locally and international) and most importantly, through fellowships.
The Lion Mountain
We have the Lion Mountain in the background. Difficult to do without the imposing forms of the lion when heading towards Mahebourg. It is the symbolic guardian of our village for lasting generations. It represents our will to stand strong and look over our young generation.
The Cavendish Bridge
Commonly known as 'Pont la Ville-Noire', dates more than two centuries, it withstood the throes of time, and is the pride of Mahebourg. This historical monument of the locality connects Mahebourg its sub-villages. The bridge symbolizes (1) a lasting link within the Rotaract club Mahebourg, (2) a solidarity that will withstand all the obstacles that may arise along the way, and (3) stand as a strong mean to unite communities.
It represents an opportunity to celebrate when fellows (the fishermen) maneuver their boats altogether by few means, but with great passion, and these men of the sea offer us a beautiful spectacle. We use this as an inspiration for in our club, (1) members all want to make a positive contribution to society no matter how small but impactful, and (2) will become an achievement for celebration while (3) having a good and cheerful spirit in the team.
The sea (bay of Grand Port) symbolizes hardship, the flow of time, opportunities, and mystery, through which the club will have to venture. Formless and unpredictable, yet people enjoy its turquoise lagoons and
'Mauri-licious' seafood. We use the sea to represent (1) the period of hardship through troubled waters yet enjoy the period calmness and, (2) vast opportunities for development.
