Preschool Repair to Serve 150 Poor Thai Children



The Landin Slum Mercy Preschool provides a head start in a safe learning environment for 150 poor Bangkok children every year. Most urgent repairs are required in our Landin Mercy Preschool.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

We have been providing national curriculum preschool education to the poorest children in Bangkok since 1973. Tens of thousands of slum children have graduated from our Mercy schools, currently numbering 27, before entering government primary schools. Located mainly in squatter neighborhoods, several of our schools are in need of urgent repairs. Most urgent repairs are required in our Landin Mercy Preschool.

How will this project solve this problem?

Urgent repairs:1) To build an exterior structural wall with windows that keeps snakes, rats, pests, and downpours out of the classrom 2) To re-wire school electricity;3) repair one of the two working toilets serving 150 students; 4) repaint school

Potential Long Term Impact

First opened in 1997, our Landin Mercy Preschool has educated over 2,000 children; strengthened the Landin slum community; and increased the education and income opportunities of of community residents.
