SIACHEN is now showing in Dubai at DUCTAC Theatre, Mall of The Emirates from Thursday 17th March to Saturday 19th March 2016 sponsored by ACD!
The American College of Dubai hosted an annual Iftar for the children of ‘Special Needs Future Development Centre’ and their families last July 24th. The Iftar was held to commemorate the holy month of Ramadan and to support the wonderful work done by the SNF Group to help Special Needs Children.
The event was attended by over 50 participants including special needs students, their families and American College of Dubai students and staff.
The SNF Development Center is an extension of the Special Needs Families Support Group in Dubai. The aim of the Center is primarily to give special needs individuals the ability to integrate into society as independent, driven individuals. Having started off small, they now stand at over 146 members strong with the notable aim of preparing their students for daily life through personal management, academics and social participation.
At the Iftar, the American College of Dubai made a generous donation to the SNF Development Centre to encourage them to keep up their noble work and to continue striving towards excellence in their cause.
Suleiman Suleiman, Director at American College of Dubai, said: “We believe in being part of the community and fostering in our students the spirit of generosity. As part of our outreach programme we support the SNF Centre and our Iftar with SNF students and family has become an annual event that we all look forward to.”
The event was sponsored by Emax Electronics.
