SCLC ACS is the first UAE based sociocultural lifestyle humanities and recreatives consultancy and studies company. Our passion is to answer modern society's need for human connections while reviving and centering on societal characteristics, values, and moral commitments as foundations.

In the heart of the bustling UAE, where cultures converge and innovation thrives, SCLC ACS (SocioCultural Lifestyle Consultancies, Administrative Consultancy & Studies) as the first sociocultural awareness and positive societal and lifestyle values integrated training and consultancy studies company stands as a beacon of relevance in today's modern and fast-paced society.

SCLC Sociocultural Lifestyle Consultancy is more than a company and an organization; it's a movement towards a more connected world. Through our unique Productive Intercultural Engagements (PIE) approach and cultural discovery series’, we strive to create positive personal and social impacts globally.

As we embark on this transformative journey, we proudly begin with

presenting the Filipino Okir Cultural Segment—a teaser from our

intercultural competency and discovery series not for mere entertainment

but as an evocative expression, introducing the world to the profound

beauty and values embedded in our roots as compassionately empathic

humans with respect and true appreciation for each other.

The Okir project, in the same vision as for all other cultures, is a subliminal

call for a return to Filipino identities and values, reintroducing strength and

to the communities we coexist with.

It echoes the sentiment that understanding one another begins with

knowing and cherishing ourselves first. Understanding, appreciation and

valuing self worthiness for ourselves and towards others.

Unveiling our joint intercultural discovery methods and series is just the beginning and not the totality. We invite you to join us on this transformative journey—a journey that begins with exploring and appreciating our different roots and extends to bringing sustainably positive and attainable intercultural collaborative values to societies worldwide. Together, let's celebrate the beauty of all of our uniquely rich and varied cultural identities, and build a world where connectivity knows no bounds.

My journey as an expat mother of differently abled children began with a profound realization – the undeniable impact of sociocultural dynamics on individual lives and business success. What sets our business apart is its distinctive approach of weaving sociocultural awareness and positive societal values consciousness into every aspect of training, content and activities we come up with. In a world that often values rapid progress over holistic growth, my business thrives by emphasizing the crucial interplay between personal values, societal norms, and everyday engagement goals.

The UAE, a mosaic of cultures and traditions, provides the perfect canvas for SCLC’s unique offering. My business isn't just about imparting knowledge; it's about fostering understanding. In a society where diverse perspectives coexist, my training nurtures empathy and open-mindedness. By sensitizing individuals and businesses to the nuances of various cultures, customs, and beliefs, We empower them to forge stronger connections and collaborations.

Positive societal and lifestyle values are the compass by which I navigate my business endeavors. Amid the rapid currents of change, people yearn for authenticity and meaning. Our consultancy delves deep into the wellsprings of values that sustain happiness and well-being. From work-life balance to ethical business practices, We equip our clients with the tools to thrive in an environment that often glorifies constant hustle. In a world where time is a precious commodity, my business acknowledges the need for efficiency. The fast-paced society of the UAE demands solutions that are not only relevant but also adaptable. Our training programs, content and approach are tailored to cater to the evolving needs of individuals and businesses, ensuring that they remain agile in a dynamic landscape.

As the UAE and our society continues to march forward as a hub of innovation and progress, SCLC ACS acts as a custodian of heritage. By celebrating cultural traditions and infusing them with contemporary wisdom, we bridge the gap between the past and the present, enriching lives with a profound sense of rootedness. We bridge generations and cultures as we build a strong Community.
