Maryvonne Pool, a true Seychellois and ardent supporter of the Seychelles’ Carnival


(Posted 13th April 2015)

The Seychelles’ Consul to Tanzania, who is also the Seychelles Tourism Ambassador in Tanzania, Ms. Maryvonne Pool, has once again sponsored the giant posters which will be put on display across Victoria ahead of the upcoming fifth edition of the Seychelles’ Carnival.

Maryvonne, who was instrumental in bringing Air Seychelles’ flights to Dar es Salaam last December, when the airline launched their twice a week services between Mahe and Dar, has over the past years regularly donated the giant displays, made in Dar es Salaam by one of her companies, and shipped them to Mahe to show her solidarity and support to the tourism board and ministry on her home island.

The 20 metre by 3 metre giant banner, which was flown to Mahe by Air Seychelles and is now on display in the centre of Victoria outside the Cultural Centre, has this year been supplemented by a second display banner which will used as a backdrop behind the new VIP and media area outside the stadium from where the carnival juggernaut will go underway at 15.00 hrs on Saturday, 25th of April.

Both Minister St. Ange, in charge of tourism and culture and the CEO of STB, Ms. Sherin Naiken, have expressed their appreciation and gratitude to Maryvonne, who has since the inaugural event 5 years ago faithfully supported the carnival festival by sending in the banners saving the organizers tens of thousands of dollars in production cost over the years.
