SDM (Maltese Christian Democrat Students) was founded by a group of University students in 1974. SDM finds its origins as a student organization in the troubled political period of the time. One of the main aims of the founders was that, during a period when freedom of expression was not always respected, the University students and those students in other Post-Secondary Institutions be given the opportunity to express their opinions.
SDM works towards:
- Creating a social conscience amongst Maltese students.
- Bringing together the Christian Democrat Students in Malta and, through them, promoting the values and ideals of Christian Democracy.
- Ensuring that the rights of Maltese students are maintained.
- Promoting the political and social participation of students on University, National and International levels.
With campaigns such as Project 7000, which raised over 14,000€ for charity in 2 years, SDM showed that it is not an organisation focusing solely on elections or parties. This exhibits that we want students to take the initiative themselves and make a difference in the lives of people in need
SDM is the oldest and largest political organization in the University of Malta. As a member of SDM, you too can voice your opinion.
