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.


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

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.
