Mauritius’ premier insurance services provider, State Insurance Company of Mauritius (SICOM), is sponsoring Jane Constance, a musical child prodigy who happens to be visually challenged, to travel to Paris next month for her concert, which is an initiative of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
The sponsorship by SICOM covers her airfare, travel insurance, and out-of-pocket expenses, and was made over to her at a ceremony on Friday, November 21, 2014, at the SICOM building.
The ceremony took place in the presence of Jane’s family and Professor Armoogum Parsuramen, founder of the Global Rainbow Foundation, with whom SICOM had the opportunity to collaborate during their major project of the Jaipur Foot Camp in Mauritius.
Jane Constance will travel to Paris for her concert at the UNESCO on December 3, 2014, which is a first for the young Mauritian.
The concert will be held in the presence of eminent personalities of the UNESCO and of several renowned guests who work for the recognition and integration of disabled people in mainstream society.
During her concert in Paris, Jane will also share the stage with Luan Pommier, a 14-year-old partially sighted youth from Guadeloupe.
Besides, she will highlight the importance of structures better adapted to disabled people.
The aim of SICOM was to promote youth and the disabled in Mauritius who are talented but lack the necessary platform to showcase their skills.
Professor Parsuramen discovered the talent of Jane Constance, Mauritius’ rising musical star, during the launch of the SICOM Foundation last December.
SICOM Group had already recognized the talent of this young disabled student of 13 years old and had invited her to sing at the launch of its foundation.
Impressed by so much talent and courage, Professor Parsuramen honoured Jane by appointing her as the Ambassador of the Global Rainbow Foundation.
SICOM management noted that the organisation is glad to be able to contribute towards Jane’s travels because she has truly merited all their support and they wish her all the success in the world as the company firmly believes that she will bring renown to the country.
