About Us

L'Amicale Maurice-Israel (L'AMI) stands for mutual friendship and respects between our two countries. This friendship stands rock solid. The AMI is a non- profit organization which has just celebrated its 50th anniversary. The aims and core values of the association are promoting mutual exchanges in spheres like culture and science especially farming and agriculture. "Israel is a Human Laboratory that the world recognizes for its contribution to society". ( Mr Marc Ayle Duval Editorial Team of Shalom Club Mauritius Magazine ) No doubt about that when we know a small country like Israel has produced so many Noble Prize Winners in many fields especially in medical and scientific discoveries for humanity. The strong bonding connection between Mauritius and Israel is vibrant. Many of our fellow Mauritians have benefited through scholarships, training in Israel in the fields of Agriculture, Farming and Fishing. (see History of L’AMI) Israel is perhaps the only country in the Middle East having a solid democracy with a vivid and vibrant co-existence of people of different faiths. Against all the odds, against the hatred of all hatred, Israel has survived and prospered. Amidst religious conflicts, dictatorships, terrorist groups, authoritarian regimes, civil wars rampart in the Middle East, Israel is the only democratic nation and the only economically developed and modernized one. Israeli society is vibrant, diverse and productive and yet, there are still misunderstandings created by politicians and the press on issues facing this country. L’AMI therefore is dedicated to promote a better understanding of these issues and to advocate by not only fostering greater appreciation and friendship but to see that Mauritius can benefit from the rich culture and scientific and technological breakthroughs from Israel and to highlight the mutually beneficial and a healthy diplomatic
To establish, strengthen, build, enhance and sustain the relationship between Mauritius in the multi-disciplinary fields of scientific, medical, agricultural, trade union and religious among others through a proactive engagement so as to realise the above areas to which Israel has been contributing for the upliftment of humanity throughout centuries. To promote friendly relations and to foster social and cultural activities between the citizens of the two countries. To collect at the seat of the association any documentation likely to promote the aims of the association.. To organise all activities relating to these aims. Stand up against the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanction movement. To acknowledge and recognise that the Jewish people have made an enormous contribution in social, religious and culture, scientific/medical and agriculture, philosophy and literature and art to humanity in many fields for more than 2000 years. L'AMI aims at strengthen the ties between our two countries educate, spread this knowledge and information both locally and internationally so that Jewish people will always be seen and remembered as one of the most significant innovative and productive people in human history. To be apolitical and open to all faith and religions, we believe the best means to achieve peace is not only through tolerance but by welcoming people from all sides and faiths and this can be achieved through dissemination of information and reinforcing the historical connection between Mauritius and Israel. Observe and respect the commemoration of the Holocaust. Opposition to any manifestation of anti- Semitism or racism, discrimination and distortion of information. We recognised the sad episode in history of the sufferings of the Jewish people for eons. We believe in the equality of all persons notwithstanding whom they are and where they live.
