It works together to even the odds by helping them access quality education, and by generating opportunities for personal growth, as well as skill and leadership enhancement. The weekly community service for the youth is at the heart of the program.
  2. Child development: The Child Development Program staff and volunteers, many of whom are from the community itself, dedicate themselves to answering questions, availing resources and transmitting age-appropriate knowledge and skills, guiding each child through a journey of personal, emotional and physical growth.
  3. Community support: At Ruwwad, solutions to problems are best engineered by members of the community. The team uses a collaborative, participatory approach to community organizing and development, working hand in hand with interested constituencies and engaging as partners and decision-makers.
  4. Community campaigns: Community organizers mobilize citizens to work collectively in solving longstanding challenges. Towards this end, Ruwwad adopts a structured community-focused methodology aimed at organizing community-led campaigns. The main objective of such campaigns is to nurture civic initiative and agency.
