- Who we are?

It all starts with the birth of a little boy only after 6 months of pregnancy of my son. A Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) Joie de Vivre Universelle was created in December 2008

As a mother of a little boy who suffers from intellectual impairment. We were facing difficulties in finding a therapy center in Mauritius where we could benefit from therapies, under one roof (such as psychomotor therapy, occupational therapy, specialized education, and speech therapy) which would enable him to develop his full potential.

From this experience, we decided to create a therapy center where other kids with the same pathology as my son could benefit in a long run.

As of date, JDVU has three units:

  1. Recreational Centre for seniors with Alzheimer and Parkinson
  2. Special Education Needs School
  3. Training center

- History of Joie De Vivre Universelle (JDVU)

In the year 2010, we introduced an innovative therapy center whose aim is to provide individual therapies in a multi-sensory environment for children with a mental deficiency using a one to one approach. Several therapists namely Speech therapists, Occupational therapists, psychomotor therapists, Physiotherapists, and Psychologists, all worked together as a multi-disciplinary team.

January 2014, a Special Education Needs School was set up which is a complement of the therapy center hence optimizing the progress of each child towards his autonomy, socialization, and communication capacity. Equal and tailor-made educational opportunities for each child.

Since 2018, the team took a new challenge to put forward the idea of a recreational facility in other words a specialized daycare center for our senior citizens. As of today, we have more than 15 happy beneficiaries.

- When will the concert take place?

The initiative of organizing this solidarity concert on the 28th day of November 2020 is that we want to extend our approach and competencies towards a vulnerable segment of the population. We are raising funds for underprivileged children with intellectual disabilities and also the purchase of a transport facility. The venue is Le Suffren Hotel & Marina.
