JA Mauritius and Standard Chartered Bank Launch Goal Video Project

On the occasion of the International Day of the Girls’ Child, Junior Achievement Mascareignes (JA) proudly unveiled the Goal Video Project, a groundbreaking initiative designed to empower girls through education and life skills. The project’s primary focus is to provide girls with essential knowledge on various Goal-related subjects.

JA Mascareignes’ dedicated team has meticulously created 12 videos based on the Goal Program, designed to cater to the visual preferences of young learners. The videos, presented in Kreol Morisyen, a language widely understood by all Mauritians, will be accessible on YouTube to reach a broader audience. These videos will tackle crucial themes such as communication, digital safety, peer pressure, body image, and mental health, among other Goal subjects, following sports events or games.

The launch event held at the Voila Hotel was attended by approximately 40 individuals, including representatives from the Ministry of Education, Tertiary, Science & Technology, Standard Chartered Bank, non-governmental organizations, and secondary schools.

Anousha Duva Pentiah-Hurkhoo, JA Program Manager, provided an overview of Junior Achievement Mascareignes, while Arlaine Augustin, the Program Lead for Goal, elaborated on the Goal Program, its implementation, benefits, and relevance for Mauritius. The event also featured a heartfelt testimonial from a Goal Girl and introduced the audience to Women Win and Standard Chartered, two significant contributors to the program.

The Goal Video Project is set to make a lasting impact on the lives of girls in Mauritius, promoting empowerment and education through accessible, visually engaging content.
