The closing ceremony was held in Raa Atoll School and the General Manager and the management team of JOALI Maldives were also in attendance at the ceremony alongside senior officials from Women in Tech Maldives. During the closing ceremony, the participants presented products they made with the skills acquired through the program.

JOALI Maldives Resort Manager Shifaz Hassan congratulated the participants of the programme and noted that they “strongly believe in the importance of gender equality and to the development of talented women across all industries to create a sustainable future” and expressed that “JOALI Maldives will continue to support the communities and women of Raa atoll to build that future.”
