The President today met with the five students of the tenth grade of Praslin Secondary School of Seychelles, who are visiting the Maldives under the 'Small Islands Voice' programme sponsored by UNESCO. The children were joined by their accompanying teacher, Ms. Farida Camille.

The visit of the Seychellois school children is part of a youth exchange component of the 'Small Islands Voice' programme, and the visiting students will experience life in the Maldives, share views on the environment and work with local students to design a joint project for the protection of the environment, which will be implemented under the framework of 'Small Islands Voice'. The Seychellois students are being hosted by Madhrasathul Ahmadhiyya.

The President extended a very warm welcome to the five children and their teacher, during this morning's meeting, which was held at the President's Office. Further, the President inquired from the students about their experiences from the visit, and what impressions they had made of the Maldives and its people.

The Children told the President that it had been a source of immense joy for them that he had met with them. They said that there were numerous similarities between the Maldives and Seychelles. They also briefed the President on the issues that had been raised at a seminar that was held between them and students of Madhrasathul Ahmadhiyya.
