Best Dives Maldives expands CSR programme, donates computers to local school
Best Dives Maldives, a popular dive and water sports centre operator, has expanded its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives to include a donation of 20 computer systems to a local school.
The donation was made to the school in Makunudhoo island of northern Haa Dhaal atoll on Saturday.
Best Dives Maldives’ General Manager Eric van Melis told attendees of a ceremony held at the school that his company takes its social responsibility very seriously. Similar donations would be made in the future, he added.
Shamira Mohamed, the in-charge at Makunudhoo school, thanked Best Dives Maldives for its donation and said there was a dire need for more computer systems at the school. The new systems would be used at the school’s Computer Lab, used by students for their computer studies sessions, she added.
Best Dives Maldives, a multi-centre dive and water sports operator based in resorts across six atolls, was founded in 2003. Over the past six years, the company has grown to operate dive and water sports centres, excursions and luxury yacht charters at Jumeirah Vittaveli, Centara Grand Island Resort, Centara Ras Fushi Island Resort and Spa as well as the new addition of Outrigger Konotta Maldives Resort.
As part of its CSR programme, Best Dives Maldives leads a coral restoration project together with the resorts it operates in. The company is also affiliated with Green Fins, the only recognised environmental set of standards with a comprehensive management approach to providing guidance and support to business owners and national authorities in order to promote best practices.
