Speech & Debate 2023
In partnership with the City of Rancho Cordova, Suvidha International Foundation organized a Free Speech and Debate Program and Competition for Rancho Cordova students of Grades 4th through 8th. The Rancho Cordova City’s Community Enhancement Fund provided financial support to the program.
The speech and debate programs have taught the students the valuable skills they will use for the rest of their lives, researching, writing, critical thinking, organization, persuasion, conflict resolution and communication skills. These skills are necessary in every part of our lives and learning these skills at a younger age will allow students to apply them to their day to day activities.
