Victoria Hub

The Global Shapers presence in the small-island developing state of the Seychelles is represented by the Victoria Hub. We are a registered NGO that has been operational since 2014, and comprise of a diverse and talented team whose experiences span across the worlds of business and enterprise, the public sector, the media, the judiciary and the charity sector.


Our goal has been to bring about impactful youth-led change on a community and national level. We have a particular focus this year on issues surrounding Education and Social Inclusion, and will be mounting projects that align with Sustainable Development Goals: 4 (Quality Education), 5 (Gender Equality), 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth), 10 (Reduced Inequalities) and 16 (Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions). 


Additionally, we encourage our hub members to engage themselves in conversations that actively shape our communities, our country and the African continent. Our members actively participate in and attend regional and Forum-led events, to ensure that the voices of citizens living in small-island developing states are also heard. 


If you are a part of the Forum's community and are visiting our beautiful islands, we would love to connect with you! Message us on TopLink or follow our updates on Facebook by clicking here and Liking our Page.
