According to The Ritz-Carlton Maldives, this global outreach initiative was founded to contribute and uplift local communities, built around three signature programmes: Child-Wellbeing, Environmental Responsibility, Hunger and Poverty.

The resort stated that they appreciated the immense support received by different associates at the Fari Campus – the dedicated staff island focused on community, education and engagement and the local partners, who virtually participated in the event.

We often see discrimination towards people with autism and unfathomable challenges they face in the community. I believe it’s time to take strong actions to create awareness and education. It should start from your home, workplace and community, by embracing and creating an inclusive culture. We can collectively dismantle the social stigma by acting now.
