A reading area has been established in the harbor of K. Maafushi under the Bank of Maldives (BML)’s Community Fund initiative.
The project, ‘Foiy Gunzaru' was carried out by New Star Sports Club with the aim of providing island residents and travelers a space to read and relax.
Located in the island’s harbour area, the Foiy Gunzaru is equipped with benches outside and bean bags inside the premises; and has books suitable for all ages.
New Star Sports Club commented the Foiy Gunzaru would be a great spot for residents and tourists alike, to meet, relax and read.
“Foiy Gunzaru will be a great spot for residents and tourists alike to meet, relax and read. As we currently do not have such a space for tourists, most tend to sit in the cafés nearby. With a wide range of books available, we hope everyone can expand their knowledge and make the most of their time at our space,” said the club.
The BML Community Fund is an initiative aimed at empowering individuals and NGOs to contribute to their communities through sustainable projects. Every quarter, five winning projects are selected to receive MVR 50,000 to make a difference in the community.
BML has provided financial assistance for 65 projects across Maldives through the initiative. This includes three projects in K. Atoll – in Gaafaru, Kaashidhoo and Maafushi.
