BML Opens Applications for “Aharenge Bank” Community Fund

Bank of Maldives (BML) has opened the applications for “Aharenge Bank” Community Fund. The Aharenge Bank Community Fund is  a program to empower individuals and NGOs to contribute to their communities
through sustainable projects.

The application deadline is set for 15th February 2020.

According to BML, similar to last year, five projects in the areas of education, environment, sports and community development will be selected to receive MVR 50,000 during each quarter of 2020.

“Supporting the communities we serve is part of our culture here at Bank of Maldives. Over the past year, we increased our investment to communities across the country and the Community Fund project saw benefits in 20 islands. Continuation of this fund is another step towards investing in projects that make a lasting difference in society.”BML’s CEO and Managing Director, Tim Sawyer commented.

In 2019, BML raised over MVR 1 million for its “Aharenge Bank” Community Fund to support communities across the Maldives.

Successfully completed projects under the initiative include the Nellaidhoo Community Park, refurbishment of the library in Dhaalu Maaenboodhoo, environmentally friendly initiatives in AA. Dhangethi and Sh. Feydhoo, development of Kihaadhoo children’s park and the enhancement of a classroom to aid SEN students in K. Gaafaru.
