Multiple dimensions of Poverty
There are different forms of poverty: Absolute, Relative, Situational, Generational.
Not restricted to pockets of poverty but disseminated, poverty is often lived behind closed doors. It is important to reach out and build bridges across the island.
Supporting families living in poverty and preventing vulnerable families from falling further into the poverty cycle.
Apolitical and secular, we support families from all religious & sociocultural backgrounds.
Leaving no one behind
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and its central, transformative message to ‘Leave no one behind’ shape the way we set up our operations on the field and implement our interventions.
We have, over the years, succeeded in deploying our interventions across the nine districts of the island of Mauritius, reaching out to the poorest of the poor, the most geographically remote, the most secluded.
We have a trained & dedicated team of social work professionals committed to ending poverty in all its forms (SDG1), fight discrimination and exclusion, and reduce the inequalities and vulnerabilities that leave people behind and undermine the potential of individuals as holders of rights.
General profile of beneficiaries
- families with children
- single-parent families
- reconstituted families
- grandparents looking after their grandchildren alone
To note that all families supported by Lovebridge are vulnerable or living in poverty. A large proportion of those families are headed by women.
Reducing inequalities and ending poverty is a long term fight and we stand motivated, more than ever, to deploy our operations further in the years to come and to participate, along with other stakeholders, to upholding the pledge that our country has taken as a UN member state.
