Who are we ?
Founded by Pascale Siew in 1993, Éditions Vizavi seeks to showcase the rich natural, historical, cultural and linguistic heritage of multicultural Mauritius. Focusing primarily on Mauritius, Vizavi also provides insights into the other islands of the Indian Ocean.
Mauritian culture is at the heart of Vizavi’s Young Readers List, which includes the popular Adventures of Tikulu series. These books recount the various escapades of the dreadlocked young hero and his friends as they travel around Mauritius and the other islands of the region.
For over twenty years, the publishing house has run a programme of engagement activities with schools and community organisations, that seeks to promote reading and a love of books. Vizavi is particularly conscious of the problem of illiteracy and regularly supports children from disadvantaged backgrounds.
In October 2015 Éditions Vizavi has been awarded the ‘Made in Moris’ label, in recognition of its pioneering work in the promotion of Mauritian culture and heritage.
