H.E Mr. Marie Cyril Eddy Boissezon G.O.S. K , Vice President of the Republic of Mauritius and Hon. Mrs. Fazila Jeewa Daureeawoo, G.C.S.K, Minister of Social Integration, Social Security & National Security graced the function.

Mr. Suraj Ray, current President of MACOSS did the presentation on MACOSS New Vision, New Mission, Core Values and Code of Ethics and was followed with discussion. After a long time, we notice a good numbers of participants at a MACOSS event.

N. Bossoondyal intervene on the problem of NGOs facing to open or operate a bank account. He quoted out that NGOs are being tag as CORPORATE by banks and consequently new regulations are being introduces by few banks in Mauritius. Office bearers of NGOs mandated to run the banks transactions needs to fill a new set of forms with some 7 pages and must signed on all the pages and to disclose all sorts of their incomes, properties, assets and so on as if these office bearers are some types of tycoons. On other hands it discourages office bearers who are socially and voluntarily serving an NGO. We also notice a move of popularising the concepts of promoting NGOs into SOCIAL ENTREPRENERSHIP. Time will tell us if Social/voluntary organizations which are known by all international/National organizations and CSR bodies who use to assist in aid/grant will continue their assistance when such NGOs are turned into an income generating/profit making organizations.
