Deutsche Bank Mauritius has provided assistance to enable 11 students from the Association Excel in German Language (AEGL) to undertake a study tour to Stuttgart, Germany this month.

The students, accompanied by three tutors, will fly to Germany tomorrow to embark on a 12-day study tour that will help them to improve their language skills and gain a more in-depth understanding of Germany and its people.

Deutsche Bank offered the AEGL financial assistance after local employees learnt that the students were struggling to raise the funds required to go on the tour.

According to, Javeed Ameen, Chief Country Officer for Deutsche Bank in Mauritius, the Bank came to an arrangement whereby Deutsche matched every rupee raised by the students with another two rupees. In return, AEGL has agreed to provide Deutsche Bank’s employees with subsidised attendance at German language courses over the next twelve months.

“We are very pleased to be able to provide support the AEGL’s efforts in promoting the German language and culture among our young people. This is a fantastic opportunity for them to further develop their language skills and to gain an understanding of another culture and we’re very proud to be playing a part in their development, “ said Ameen.
