The GML Joseph Lagesse Foundation
The GML Joseph Lagesse Foundation is a non-profit organisation
founded in 2005 by the CEO of GML (formerly Groupe Mon Loisir),
Arnaud Lagesse. In July 2009, it became compulsory for all
Mauritian companies to use 2% of their profits after tax for
Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives. This budget can be put
to use in specific spheres with registered organisations authorised
by the National CSR Committee (NGO, Special Purpose Vehicle or
National Programmes) or given to the Mauritius Revenue Authority
(MRA) as a tax.

Joseph Lagesse Foundation, which funds numerous projects to aid the
alleviation of poverty, provide healthcare to the those in need,
protect the environment and promote education and training in local
At LUX*, we believe that education is key and have made it our
biggest priority. As such, we offer educational programmes not only
to our staff, but also to children in local schools, ensuring that
future generations are raised as informed, responsible adults.
Besides its own projects, the GML Joseph Lagesse Foundation also
helps various other Mauritian NGOs.
Through the shared efforts and contributions of the company,
employees and local communities, we believe that the world really
will have a lighter, brighter future.
