In a bid to foster community engagement and women empowerment, JOALI Maldives has donated funds to support three Women’s Development Committees in Raa atoll.
Moreover, the luxury tourist resort has donated to WDCs of three islands; namely, Innamaadhoo, Rasmaadhoo and Maakurathu.
The donations were handed over to the representatives from the WDCs by the Joali team along with the resort’s General Manager Enver Arslan.
At the donation handover function, Mr. Arslan had focused on the relationships JOALI maintains with local communities in Raa atoll and further affirmed on building stronger ties through developing more community projects in the upcoming year.
The funds will be utilized in the islands for the following;
- Raa Innamaadhoo: the funds will be used to renovate the island’s waste disposal zone along with placement of trash bins in public areas
- Raa Maakurathu: the island’s WDC will develop a “Rayyithunge Hiyaa”; a public community space at the children’s park
- Raa Rasmaadhoo: fund utilization towards building a shaded waiting area for parents and students outside the island’s school
