Supporting Youth Initiatives in HA and HDH Atoll

In 2009 AFTF began a program of funding youth related projects in Haa Alif and Haa Dhaal Atoll. From June – December 2009, AFTF initially funded 71 projects in 30 islands. The amount of materials donated is valued at USD 166,548.89.

AFTF Program for 2009 was focused around increasing opportunities for social activities for youth in the islands. The theme Youth Opportunities was identified through a preliminary research conducted from November 2008 to February 2009 and through discussion with AFTF board members.

In 2009 we have maintained a broad program focus and allowed youth groups to interpret our focus on youth in terms of their specific needs. Based on the proposals received, AFTF funded projects for 2009 fall into four general areas; 1) Sports, 2) Multimedia, 3) Training and 4) Construction.
