Weekend activities foster development and community for children 

SCDI organizes weekend activities for children of “Breaking the Cycle” project led by dedicated volunteer tutors every Sunday morning. These activities include group study sessions, book reading, drawing, indoor physical games, and interactive life skills workshops tailored to specific themes. Through participation, children have shown positive development in comprehension, reading, and self-study skills, fostering a love for learning. The program also promotes social development, as children form closer bonds. Additionally, parents are forming a supportive network to share parenting experiences, exchange strategies, and collaborate in ensuring their children's well-being.
