There's a group called Collectif Arc en Ciel which is fighting for homosexuals since 2005. It's a non-government organisation though.

Please note that while the law in Mauritius does not criminalise homosexuality in itself, the subject remains a taboo here.

Yes I know that the subject is taboo.Do you know how this group can be contacted?Is it having any office?

I couldn't find a contact number for them. However you can get in touch with them through facebook as they've got a fan page. I've edited my answer above with the link to their facebook page.

There's no government approved organisation because there's no law for or against them.
