About

Samuel T. Reddy, Patron of The SCB Bookclub

“Being a citizen of two commonwealth nations made me realise the importance of creating lasting value where success is about significant, leaders not only need impactful learning to enrich their lives, but also need to prepare the next generation of leaders which is a largely unexplored factor in individual and collective performance”.

In 2019 TriAtis had a 10-year vision –The TriAtis Way 2030: To run leadership sustainability training, to develop this generation and the next- which is all in line with the Development Goals 4 (SDGs) to improve youth literacy. We have now rooted the SDG 4 across all our training platforms, including and in particular our workshops in not just the formal training programme but in all aspects of our leadership development accelerators for senior & middle management. Through a strong dedication from the top, and passion and energy of Samuel T. Reddy, CEO of TriAtis Global Leadership we are now partnering with companies & organisations under the Development Goals 17 (SDG17) who understand how the multiplier effect of literacy empowers children, enables them to participate fully in society and contributes to improve communities. The Sugarcane Boy Bookclub is a fully sustainable project involving every member of the society from corporate, business, to young adults to improve youth literacy while themselves becoming influential leaders of the community.

The Book club aims to promote a love of literature in a positive, nurturing environment. The club’s objective is to build confidence in young children based on a story of a Mauritian boy who is simple at sight but special on the inside. The aim is also to develop character in young children aged 7 to 11. Studies will show that a child’s character is developed up to this age. The club will appeal to a wide range of young readers but most importantly help children to build character, develop confidence and become more creative. The club will definitely bring a new vision to the youngsters of today by encouraging them to take interest in reading a book. It will help to improve their way of looking at a book and learn the lessons that we can take out of reading, each book has an underlying theme based around character building.

We want the kids who come from underprivileged families to know that they have the full right to enjoy reading and have a happy childhood too’, says Manisha Kundoo who is responsible for partnership and leads a club in Vacoas.
