TI RAYONS SOLEIL
Ti Rayons Soleil’s main objective is to promote community development and to contribute towards poverty alleviation in Mauritius. The NGO exists to bring hope to children, women and families, even in the most dire circumstances, because they believe you are the master of your own destiny. “To kapav fer li!” (You can do it!)
