Comments from the participants:
• It was a very fulfilling programme. I got ideas for the development of the Maldives of through badminton.
• There was a variety of things to see, from extracurricular activities at the school to the training camp of the national team.
• Through cooperation with the countries of South Asia, and not as individual nations, I think there is a future for social development via badminton.
• I hope that programmes like this will spread across many countries.
