Our Mission

Through our hands-on educational techniques, we seek to prepare students for the future without resorting to rote memorization or repetition, and our environmental program aims to ensure that our students can grow up in a country whose natural ecosystems remain healthy and protected.

ELI Corps

The ELI Corps program offers year-round education services to underprivileged youth. ELI Corps members are comprised of professionals, as well as qualified secondary and tertiary students, who operate after-school classes in our education centers.

ELI Scholars

The ELI Scholar program serves as an action-based think tank where qualified graduate students identify critical issues that affect local Mauritian communities and draw on their personal academic development and professional experience to develop and lead relevant projects.

ELI Fellows

The ELI Fellows program involves undergraduate students from Yale University who staff the education centers in June and July and run classes in various education areas. However, their presence on the island is limited to only eight weeks and this is where the ELI Corps comes in.
