'Cuddles' - Charity Bear by Air Seychelles

'Cuddles' is our brand new charity bear, $7 from each bear sold will be donated to the Seychelles National Council for Children.  Founded by the former First Lady, Mrs Geva Rene, the Council has grown over the years from spindly beginnings into a full-blown authority on children and is one of the

The Safe Technology Committee is running the awareness programme to mark World Telecommunication and Information Society Day, which this year has the theme: Protecting children in cyberspace.
