In a real effort of sharing and openness, the French Institute of Mauritius aims to access culture for all. It was obviously the perfect opportunity to find your little Mauritian hero, faithful to the post, as well as all his adventures, the most incredible ones than the others.

Driven by a genuine desire to encourage the cultural interest of young people, the 3rd edition of the Fête de la Jeunesse was a great success with the Mauritian public. Tikulu’s dad, the painter Henry Koombes, was himself present, feasting the little ones and big ones with personalized dedications. He was also accompanied by Céline Chowa, author of the highly acclaimed Ludo le dodo (published by Editions Vizavi), an album for toddlers, published in 2016 by Editions VIZAVI, colorful and also illustrated by the artist Henry Koombes.
