GBV research well underway in Mauritius
The Mauritius Research Council has completed data collection for the Prevalence, Attitudes and Costing Survey and is now moving into the data analysis phase. Research on the other components has also commenced. We plan to complete all aspects and launch the Mauritius report by June 2011.

The Mauritius office started 2011 with a memorable wellness experience. Loga, Mary, Virginie and Davinah (painfully!) enjoyed a full-day walk at Nouvelle Découverte on Sunday, 16 January. The outing was organised with the collaboration of VEPA, an organisation that brings together passionate lovers of nature.   We hope you enjoy the beautiful view of Peter Both Mountain.  

Young activist stays Gender Linked
We are glad that our former volunteer, Mary-Jane Piang-Nee has stayed on with us. She is now our new intern and will be providing support to the Mauritius Satellite Office. Mary-Jane has been assisting Mary Coopan in her workshops and is now acquainted with our photo gallery, VRCs and clippings.   She will also learn more about video shooting soon.

GL features at Salon des ONGs exhibition
Thirty NGOs, including Gender Links and Media Watch, participated in an exhibition for NGOs during the 16 Days period on 3 and 4 December.

The event was organised by the Mauritius Council of Social Services in collaboration with the Municipality of Beau Bassin/Rose Hill. It was officially opened by Daniel Emilien, Mayor of Beau Bassin/Rose Hill, who afterwards proceeded to visit the stands accompanied by other officials.

The exhibition was an opportunity for Gender Links and Media Watch to inform the public about their mission and goals and to display their publications. Pamphlets such as the Gender Links Vision and Mission, Gender and Media and SADC Protocol on Gender and Development were distributed. In addition, copies of Getting Smart, Glass Ceilings and Know Your Rights were sold.

Apart from the Salon des ONGs, the University of Mauritius and the press group La Sentinelle also expressed their keen interest in Gender Links publications. So far they have purchased 38 publications.
