National Empowerment Foundation (NEF)
L'Empowerment Programme a été voté dans le cadre du budget 2006-2007 dans un contexte de réforme économique du pays. Institué pour une durée de 5 ans (jusqu'en 2011) et doté d'un budget d'environ Rs 5 milliards, il est devenu opérationnel le 7 juillet 2006 avec la constitution de son Comité de Direction (steering committee).

La NEF vise à fournir aux personnes les plus vulnérables la capacité d'améliorer leurs conditions de vie. Ses missions prioritaires, à Maurice comme à Rodrigues, consistent à lutter contre la pauvreté absolue et à réduire le chômage parmi les femmes.

  • to foster a more coherent and informed approach to poverty issues among decision makers and NSAs; and
  • complement other ongoing NSA and empowerment & poverty alleviation programmes in their fight to reduce poverty.
