Sunwal Community Development Centre (SCDC-S)

History and Key Successes of the Organisation

A Brief History of the Organisation

Sunwal Community Development Centre (SCDC) is a non-profit making, non-government organisation established in 2055 BS in the form of a youth club. In 2058 BS it was formally registered in the District Administration Office and affiliated with the Social Welfare Council in 2063. It would organise sports activities, health camps, sanitary movements, anti-alcoholic movements and other social activities when it was in the form of a local club. Local youths, students, teachers and small scale business people would be members of the club. SCDC faced many challenges in running and conducting social activities because of limited funds and resources. The Organisation didn’t have any possibility of getting funds from any agency because of its limited boundary, networking and linkage. Above all, volunteer-ism was vibrant in it’s members. They were active and had a great passion to work for the poor and marginalised people. They collected funds from DEUSI VAILO and invested in community based programmes like sports, blood donation, health camps etc. Later SCDC went into partnership with UMN and INF and worked hard to achieve some organisational goals. Awareness raising, referral, rehabilitation and counselling were the main programmes that supported this organisation to be publicly known in the community.
