JCI in Mauritius


Junior Chamber International Mauritius (JCI Mauritius) then known as Jeune Chambre Economique de Maurice (JCEM) was officially set up in 1980, operating as a French local chapter and won its affiliation with JCI at the 1984 World Congress in Montreal, Canada, with two chapters: Port Louis and Curepipe.

Since then two more chapters (Local Organisation Members or LOMs) have been affiliated, namely, Beau Bassin / Rose Hill and Quatre Bornes. In 2007, City Plus has been affiliated to JCI Mauritius.  Today, with five local chapters affiliated, JCI Mauritius has around 150 members and is recognised at national and international levels as a model Non Governmental Organization (NGO).

Many members of JCI Mauritius have served at top positions within JCI – Marday Venkatasamy, Arnaud Godère, Clairette Ah Hen, Henry Loo Chin Moy and Patrice Ferrière have served as JCI Vice Presidents. Henry Loo Chin Moy has served as JCI Executive Vice President in 2004 and Aruna Pulton, in 2008. in 2017, Asha Auckloo was elected to serve as JCI Vice President. Arnaud Godère was also JCI Executive Vice President in 1992 and went on to reach the highest office in our organization, the World Presidency in 1994.

Building local, national and international networks, we draw on the experience of JCI alumni who have succeeded in the various facets of life and who provide assistance when required. Representing countless occupations and skills, we are creative, bold leaders who are developing  new  skills,  laying  new  foundations,  and  establishing  new  friendships  and networks.

We believe in the advancement of the global community and the creation of positive change by improving ourselves and the world around us. We meet at local, national, and international events to exchange ideas and share best practices. We also learn from dynamic speakers and trainers at interesting and active seminars and presentations. We are growing personally and professionally because we are learning by doing, actively organizing projects and activities that benefit our communities and ourselves.

2018 JCI Mauritius National President: Mr Roumesh Oomah
