Beginning in 2016, Madaa Creative Center (MCC) resolved to make its services more accessible by establishing branches in different parts of Silwan. The new branches of (MCC) in Batten el Hawa and Ein el Loze neighborhoods in Silwan aim at offering quality services to the residents of the most entrenched parts of Silwan – the parts that can only be reached by foot and lack open and large enough spaces needed for gathering, social, recreational and collective activities in East Jerusalem neighborhoods. Another reason is to facilitate children’s safe access to Madaa’s various weekly and daily activities in the village. Madaa’s branches offer ‘safe spots' and ‘recreational spaces’ for children, youth and adults to spend meaningful time outside of their family homes and develop their skills and knowledge while keeping them off the streets; where they are exposed to many dangers in light of socially, economically and politically harsh conditions.

Moreover, (MCC) continuously strives to develop its programs to meet the needs of the local community in Jerusalem; it made a remarkable progress in March 2020 by opening a library, the Edward Said library located at (Wadi Hilweh)
