“Our purpose is to find a better future by improving community conditions.”

Sohag Community Development (SCDA) Cooperation Circle (CC) promotes a better future for the local community through comprehensive development. The small Muslim community in the city of Sohag is in daily cooperation with the majority of Coptic Christians in this city. Therefore, CC members have experienced countless interfaith encounters between Muslims and Christians. They organize Ramadani Iftars (feasts) that are attended by Christian and Muslim friends. After the meal, CC members conduct discussions about fasting in Islam and Christianity. These types of events foster a unique atmosphere that promotes closeness.
