Mothers in Darfur, busy with their daily tasks, have little time for active engagement with their small children. The lack of mental stimulation during these crucial formative years diminishes the development potential of the children forever. KIDS FOR KIDS is desperate to address this situation by building and equipping kindergartens in the villages. These will enable children to ultimately develop their full potential, achieve greater success at school and attain better life opportunities.
Education is a key pathway out of poverty but few villages in Darfur have kindergartens. With mothers busy with the daily tasks their small children lack the necessary stimulation during these crucial formative years of their lives and as a result opportunities are lost which can never be regained and their development potential is diminished for ever. It is well recognised that children's mental and physical faculties develop fastest during these early years and these children are missing out.
KIDS FOR KIDS will build and equip kindergartens. Each kindergarten will comprise 2 brick built classrooms, a small office and 2 latrines. The project will also provide furniture, blackboards; play equipment and educational materials including playground equipment (slide, etc.), sports equipment, musical instruments, modelling clay, books, educational tools for numeracy and literacy, and art materials; uniforms for the children and the training of teachers.
The mental stimulation, physical activities and social interaction provided by the kindergartens will provide a solid foundation enabling the children to ultimately develop their full potential. They will enable the children to achieve greater success in their subsequent education which will, in turn, help them to attain better life opportunities. Each kindergarten will benefit a minimum of 50 children in the first year and the number of children benefitting will increase over time.
