VDWS Water Sports

The  demand  for  Water  Sports  professionals  has increased with the increasing number of tourists visiting Maldives each year. Many Maldivians have the potential to become professionals in this field but are unable to do so due to lack of funds or other social barriers.  

The Water Sports Training Program aims to build a pool of local professionals ready for employment in the Water Sports industry.
