The library at the H.Dh. Hanimaadhoo School has been developed with the support of the BML’s Community Fund. The project was initiated by Hanimaadhoo Zuvaanunge Jamiyya, a local NGO in the island.
With the upgrade, the library now has a special reading corner for SEN class students, additional bookshelves as well as chairs and tables to provide a better environment for students to study. An additional 700 books were also added to the Library, of which over 450 books were procured through the Community Fund while the rest were received as gifts and donations from the community.
The President of Hanimaadhoo Zuvaanunge Jamiyya, Hussain Waheed stated, “We wanted to refurbish the library to cater for the increased demand for such a facility on the island. By adding new books, more chairs and tables as well as a dedicated space for SEN class students, we have been able to create an environment where more children can develop interest to read and learn. I would like to thank all members of our NGO and those who supported us throughout the project.”
The Community Fund is an initiative of BML to empower individuals to contribute to their communities through sustainable projects. The Fund supports projects in the thematic areas of education, environment, sports and community development.
