JOALI Maldives is a passionate supporter of community engagement and women empowerment. To honor the economic aspirations of women, the resort promotes female education and vocational training with the aim of opening up avenues of self-sufficiency and opportunities for social entrepreneurship.
To foster community engagement and women empowerment, JOALI donated funds to support three Women’s Development Committees (WDC) in Raa atoll: Raa Innamaadhoo WDC, Raa Rasmaadhoo WDC, and Raa Maakurathu WDC. The donations were handed over to the representatives from the WDCs by the JOALI team, together with JOALI Maldives’ General Manager, Enver Arslan, at a small gathering in Raa Maakurathu.
Enver highlighted the relationship that JOALI maintains with the communities in Raa atoll, and the hopes of building even closer ties through developing more community projects in the upcoming year.
The three WDCs will be utilizing the funds for the following community development projects:
- Raa Innamaadhoo WDC will renovate the island’s waste disposal area, as well as place dustbins at public areas around the island.
- Raa Maakurathu WDC will develop a ‘Rayyithunge Hiyaa’, a public community space at the children’s park.
- Raa Rasmaadhoo WDC will build a shaded waiting area for parents and students outside the school.
The donations will reach over 3,000 people living on these three nearby islands.
JOALI Maldives’ CSR strategy, Joy of Caring, focuses on Joy of Preserving, which promotes environmental initiatives; Joy of Supporting, which fosters community engagement; Joy of Empowering, which supports women empowerment; and Joy of Conserving, which drives operational sustainability.
Amid the abundant life between the palm trees and sparkling turquoise water sits JOALI Maldives, the very first art-immersive resort in the Maldives. Based on Raa Atoll, one of the largest and deepest atolls in the world, guests can expect brilliant blue waters, a myriad of sea life, and pristine white-sand beaches fringed by gently swaying coconut palms. Each of the 73 villas is the epitome of sustainable glamour and was inspired by individual stories and designed to take the guests on a rich sensory journey. Boasting a lavish range of culinary options, every dish at JOALI, tells a story and every plate becomes a journey, a journey of savours, fragrance, and joy – an art immersive experiential dining.
