Bank of Maldives BML says the library at the AA. Atoll Education Centre located in Rasdhoo has been developed with the support of the ‘Aharenge Bank Community Fund’.

BML said that with the winning project proposal submitted by Ismail Shimaau, the library is now equipped with new book stands, furniture, and a variety of new books. The newly opened library now has over 1000 books with over 500 books from this collection provided as part of the Community Fund while the rest were received as gifts and donations.

The winner of the project, Ismail Shimaau stated that 235 students are studying at the AA. Atoll Education Centre but the books in the library were outdated and though the library area was spacious, it was in need of books and furniture.

I wanted to revamp the library and create an environment where children develop an interest to read. Hence, in addition to renewing the bookshelves, we procured new books and created an environment to relax and read. I would like to thank Aishath Azleena for continuous support throughout the project. This is definitely a great gift to the students of this island”.
