Indenture has marked the history of Mauritius significantly. Today, almost 70% of the Mauritian population are the descendants of indentured labourers.
The Aapravasi Ghat Trust Fund is mandated to conduct research on the indenture experience and to document heritage related to indenture. To this end, several projects are undertaken. This page provides an overview of the tangible and intangible heritage associated with indenture to disseminate our research results.
