To promote sustainable farming practices within the community, KIDS, in collaboration with the island’s Women’s Development Committee, conducted training sessions for interested locals. These sessions focused on raising awareness about hydroponics and other farming methods.

The BML Small Grants Fund was launched as part of the Bank’s 40th-anniversary celebrations. The fund aims to empower NGOs to undertake community-based projects that champion environmental causes and promote sustainable development across the Maldives.
