Revisiting the Past, through Memories, Experience & Innovation
IOASH - Projet 2025 is a social initiative, designed by Young Graduates from the History and Political Science Department of University of Mauritius. It all started with an idea for innovation and reimagination. Heritage as we know, has been passed down from generation to generation through school text books. By reimagining this methodology, we are presenting IOASH Projet 2025 which is a non profit project for the sole purpose of revisiting the past and opening the doors of our heritage to a global platform.
The objects are:
1.1 to promote research and/or any activities in relation to the promotion of shared heritage, history, culture and artistic diversity;
1.2 to assist any organisation and/or institutions as required in research and development;
1.3 to maintain a digital repository of any documentations in relation to technical reports undertaken by the association;
1.4 to advocate for sustainability and implement any initiatives for social activities and welfare by aligning with the Sustainable Development Goals; and
1.5 to do all such things that are conducive to the attainment of the above objects.
