Al Reem Abdullah Al Falasi, SCMC Secretary-General, will present programmes and activities related to childhood to the consultative council, which is entitled to express its opinions, whenever requested, on projects related to motherhood, childhood, education, health, culture and society, to raise awareness among children about the council’s activities and their rights.

Al Falasi stressed that the Council aims to care for children, implement relevant programmes, and hold workshops and events that create opportunities for children to interact while ensuring their freedom of expression, to make them feel the attention given to them by the nation and the community, through providing a suitable environment to boost their self-esteem.
