A 'Fini Park' for Kelaa’s School through BML Community Fund

English Dhivehi

With support from BML Community Fund a community oriented park has been opened outside H.A. Kelaa School along with a space to park bicycles. The park was opened by Kelaa based NGO, Island Development and Environmental Awareness Society (IDEAS) and the park is named ‘Kelaa School Fini Park’.

IDEAS built the park around the trees outside the school which provides shade and a natural space for everyone to gather. Along with that, they identified the need for a space for students to park their bicycles when they come to school.  

“With the Community Fund initiative we are working towards supporting communities across the Maldives. The community park project by the NGO IDEAS will benefit parents and children alike and also create awareness among the community for the importance of green spaces. We hope that this project brings joy to the people of Kelaa” stated BML’s Manager Public Relations, Mohamed Saeed.  

“Students who go to the school with bicycles and parents who are there to drop off and pick up children is usually standing outside the school in the sun. There wasn’t a designated space to park the bicycles and so it was left in different corners. Within the NGO we identified the need for a space that parents and children can enjoy as well as park their bicycles. We built the park with benches around the trees outside the school. We are humbled to have finished the project and for being able to support the community in such a way.” said an Official from IDEAS.
