Female unemployment rate in Mauritius has traditionally been much higher than for males. To address this gender gap, the National Budget 2014 stipulates that the Skills Working Group and the Ministry of Labour, Industrial Relations, Employment and Training will implement a "Back to Work" Programme for women who wish to join/rejoin the labour force. This will consist of special training schemes to prepare them for at least 15 occupations. A budget of Rs 100m has been earmarked for this Programme. www.backtowork.mu provides information on how women, who wish to integrate/reintegrate the world of work after many years of being housewife or after having left their jobs for one reason or another, can join and participate in this programme.
