Living in Seychelles
The Seychelles is a country comprised of 115 islands, located in the Indian Ocean off the east coast of Africa. It is the least populated nation in Africa, with just over 94,000 residents. A former British colony, the country became independent and a Commonwealth nation in 1976. 42 of the 115 islands inhabit all but 2% of the country’s population. 42% of the Seychelles territory is designated to wildlife protection, and this comprises many of the uninhabited islands. The nation is known for its biodiversity. Unsurprisingly given its location, the Seychelles predominantly exports fish, and this comprises 80% of total outward trade. Tourism is a big source of income too; the Seychelles has some of the world’s most luxurious resorts. Piracy remains a threat to the island and is estimated to cost the nation 4% of its GDP through the loss of boats and fishing produce. Culturally the Seychelles has the idea of the mother as a domestic organiser of the household and is seen to be responsible for primarily her children but also the finances of the household. The father meanwhile is the sole-earner but has a limited domestic role. The Seychelles’ primary education system is strong, with a near perfect literacy rate, though at higher education the country can struggle to retain its most talented young people who instead travel abroad to more prestigious universities. Notably, affiliations between the University of Seychelles and the University of London, which comprises institutions such as Kings College and London School of Economics, has been made to try and retain native students.
