Like every year, 2% of Evolution’s total turnover is contributed towards charities, social or environmental organisations (CSR projects) to support their development. In 2014, Evolution funded the following projects through its CSR programme:
The Association de Parents d’Enfants Inadaptés de l’île Maurice (APEIM) works towards disabled people’s well-being and their recognition as citizens in Mauritius.
APEIM’s mission is to set up and manage dedicated centres and services for the development, the care, the support and the specialised education of children and adults with developmental and mental disabilities, and to promote their integration in the community.
Through its donations in 2014, Evolution sponsored five mentally disabled young adults of APEIM (Wilson, Fabio, Steward, Christophe and Ludovic) ensuring their inclusion in society, and contributed to the renewal of equipment such as educational games and computer hardware.
Sailing pour Tous
The association Sailing pour Tous was created in April 2011 with the purpose to make it possible for Mauritian children between 7 and 14 to learn to sail, regardless of their origin and social level.
Evolution sponsored a mobile sailing school project aiming to reach out to children and bring to them the pleasures of sailing. Every week, 80 children gather at the Suffren cove to learn the basics of sailing.
The project’s costs, including transportation of equipment and the acquisition of required transport means, were covered by Evolution’s CSR budget.
Created in 2007, the nongovernmental organisation Mission Verte gathers 200 members today. Their mission is to create awareness on the necessity to reduce, reuse and recycle waste.
To date, Mission Verte operates about twenty waste-sorting facilities across the island, has collected 1,260 tons of waste and saved up to 2,142 tons of carbon dioxide.
Evolution supported this organisation through the funding of a glass-recycling workshop.
Joie de Vivre Universelle
This nongovernmental organisation takes care of mentally disabled children and provides them with an educational programme tailored to their specific needs.
In 2014, Evolution’s CSR budget was partly used to remunerate the Therapy Centre staff (psychologist, occupational therapist and speech therapist) and buy school supplies.
This project particularly matters to us since one of our employees’ son benefits from it.
EVO PEOPLE AT ÎLE DES DEUX COCOS
Finding a playlist for the trip was not an easy task. Luckily, Vincent picked up the struggle and played a few sega songs. With Claire, Akshay and Dorinne joining in the fun with their amazing dance steps, we knew the party had begun!
