Last year one of wonderful volunteers Tegan came up with the idea of a Poster Competition for the kids. The theme was the environment and in particular keeping the beach clean. Having already done several beach cleaning projects the idea was to keep the children motivated and give them something fun to do but also something that could really make a difference.

Once the competition was done and with the help of Lazy Gecko one of the local NGO's on the island Volunteer Maldives sponsored the beach signs which were created by using the art work the children from Velidhoo had created.

The boards have been placed around the beach area to try and discourage pollution from the island and to warn the community of the dangers of marine pollution.
Volunteer Maldives sponsored all 5 signs for the island.

We plan to do similar projects on other islands we work with.
