    With no natural resource and a history of colonialism, the island nation has drastically raised its standard of living.

    Suppose someone were to describe a small country that provided free education through university for all of its citizens, transportation for school children, and free health care – including heart surgery – for all. You might suspect that such a country is either phenomenally rich or on the fast track to fiscal crisis.

    After all, rich countries in Europe have increasingly found that they cannot pay for university education, and are asking young people and their families to bear the costs. For its part, the United States has never attempted to give free college for all, and it took a bitter battle just to ensure that America's poor get access to health care – a guarantee that the Republican Party is now working hard to repeal, claiming that the country cannot afford it.

    But Mauritius, a small island nation off the east coast of Africa, is neither particularly rich nor on its way to budgetary ruin. Nonetheless, it has spent the last decades successfully building a diverse economy, a democratic political system, and a strong social safety net. Many countries, not least the US, could learn from its experience.

    In a recent visit to this tropical archipelago of 1.3 million people, I had a chance to see some of the leaps Mauritius has taken – accomplishments that can seem bewildering in light of the debate in the US and elsewhere. Consider home ownership: while American conservatives say that the government's attempt to extend home ownership to 70 per cent of the US population was responsible for the financial meltdown, 87 per cent of Mauritians own their own homes – without fueling a housing bubble.

    Mauritius inategemea misaada zaidi na misaada wanayopata wanaitumia ipasavyo.. mwaka jana walipewa mabilion ya mapesa na serikali ya china around 20 million yuan , kabla ya china pia walisaidiwa na serikali ya India. Misaada ikitumika ipasavyo huleta mafanikio
