Community Building

We believe that the key to creating a supportive learning environment for children of all abilities is to create a community of support and encouragement around everyone.

What We Believe In

 

Social Diversity for Children Foundation was founded with the hope of creating a supportive learning environment for children of all abilities - one that could be communicable and resounding for the children of today, tomorrow, and forever. Our mission is to provide quality educational and learning programs to empower children with disabilities from all socioeconomic backgrounds to become the world's future leaders.

Alternative Therapy

 

Our Education Through Creativity (ETC) is an art therapy program that encourages interaction and connection between children with disabilities and children without. SDC wants to provide children who are easily overstimulated by sound and movement a safe environment in which to participate freely. For those who are comfortable with social interaction to begin with, our Building Bridges with Music (BBM) program makes use of music as a mediator to promote socialization between children with disabilities and children without disabilities. We are not so much concerned with improving the musical abilities of children. Rather, we hope that children participating in the program will become more well-adjusted and confident in their own abilities.

Birthday Surprise

 

Due to financial implications, many parents can only purchase small, ineffectual trinkets from the dollar store as birthday presents for their child. At SDC, we believe that every child deserves a full, well-rounded childhood, complete with magic, surprise, and joy. We hope to show children with disabilities that there are greater possibilities in their futures and that they have the support of many people, in addition to their families, who believe in them.

Youth Training Workshops

 

SDC strongly affirms the idea that empathy can only come with understanding and acceptance. The current state of society today reflects a familiar situation in which kind-hearted individuals are willing to selflessly help out others, but lack the resources and training to do so in a confident and effective way. When it comes to working with the vulnerable sector like children with disabilities however, this reality is especially palpable. Without the assurance of knowledge on disabilities and how to support children with disabilities, SDC volunteers and members- no matter how willing to contribute- may feel apprehensive when interacting with people with disabilities. This can deter open and honest relationships from developing between diversity.
