After several months of work, Enfants des minorités has begun to change in order to concentrate entirely on education!
Now that we’ve finished the building work at “EDM Baan Din”, we have worked on education. Our education centre is now open.
Being concerned with education, it is better to work directly with the schools. That is what we have done: our “Baan Din” centre is now an annexe to the school, and we have launched a partnership with them.
“Baan Din” is at the same time a library, an English learning centre, a place to host school workshops, notably workshops of art, indispensable for children’s development.
Our big priority to improve the education of the children rests on implementing the Montessori method in the kindergarten. This method has proved itself during more than 100 years and offers a real chance for the children.
We have financed the employment of extra teachers, we’ve trained them, and we are happy to be able to announce that, from the 1st November 2017, the date on which the kindergarten starts, they are in post!
We shall tell you more about this method, about putting it in place progressively and about our expectations in a later article.
To help the village families, we are distributing to the poorest children food and clothes.
A new venture for our team of volunteers who are hopeful to see the village children embark on a better future!
We shall give you more details in later articles!
