Dhidhdhoo Kurimagu is a registered NGO established to promote sustainable development and community empowerment. We aim to identify and resolve environmental, social and economic issues in our island Haa Alifu Dhidhdhoo through community engagement and mobilization. And our hope is to build an empowered and an aware community and nurture young minds to understand the importance of the environment for a greener, socially and economically sound future.
One of our primary goals is to build an environmentally conscious community and reduce one time use plastics.
We are also working on to make greener island. To achieve this, we are working on to make a plant nursery to contribute plants and run a campaign using school children, government institutes and their staff to plant trees in the island.
We have approached to conduct information sessions by engaging with school students and other institutions in our island. However, we are faced with financial constraints yet again. Our NGO has been running through self-funding, hence we are faced with a lot of challenges to implement our vision effectively and efficiently.
