A s Part of the World Environment day last week, and the start of Volunteer Maldives’ nationwide environmental program which will continue in to next year, our wonderful volunteers, and NGO’s VYDS and Club Still Red on Velidhoo Island, Noonu Atoll, participated in a tree planting ceremony.

Having donated 5 trees, our volunteers on Velidhoo – Tegan, Ryan, Marc and Victoria, braved the heat of the day straight from the classroom to head out onto the baking white sand to plant the trees.

With a little help from the Maldivian National Security Services (NSS), and some visiting government officials, they all got stuck in!

All photographs were taken by acclaimed Maldivian photographer, Ahmed Zahid.
