Hi Kevin,

Yes. I read about the rejuvenation process of 2011. Nothing much
happened since then and it appears there is much hesitation [1] to help
fix the local issue.

My observation of groups in Mauritius is that people tend to be happy
being founders, co-founders or other fancy titles. However, there is
little advocacy on the group mission and other matters. I am keen to
learn from ISOC and your experience in the region in order to address
the local issue.
