Anou Kompren Nu Societé aims to eradicate the social problem; drugs, in one of the most affected districts and regions in Mauritius. To create an awareness among the people on social evils and drug abuse in the society. The session was carried out in aim to create awareness amongst the inhabitants of the region, Cite Labradserie. It is a stepping stone for the creation of a group that would keep a constant eye on their respective communities, a 'neighborhood watch'. They will act as a watchdog and report any abnormal activites. Hence, making the community a secure place.
The idea of this session came after a needs analysis conducted in Curepipe, Mauritius, with our main collaborator the Crime Prevention Unit. Whereby, it was found that the level of drug abuse in Curepipe were very high. The figures were alarming and impact of action taken were low. Our aim was to make the society involved and hand-in-hand work to combat this scourge.
The session was successfully carried out, which created an awareness amongst the inhabitants of the region, Cite Labradserie. The session was the stepping stone for a new another process, monitoring so as to ensure the aim of the project is attained. That is, to create a 'neighborhood watch', a group of people that would look after the community and report any abnormal activity. Hence, making the community a secure place.
To carry out two more sessions in other regions. To ensure the group is successfully set up and are able to perform to the best of their abilities, and have constant follow-ups with the group in charge.
