Background

MERCY Malaysia set up a Pre-School for children between 4-6 years old at Kerinding 2 IDP camp located in El Geneina. We launched on 27th November 2004 and registered 350 children. MERCY Malaysia collaborated with the Sudanese Ministry of Education in devising the programme for the pre-school. We also included activities such as play therapy, art therapy and music therapy. MERCY Malaysia deployed volunteer educationists and clinical psychologists to train local Sudanese to become facilitators in the pre-school with the prospects of managing the school on their own.
