Kindergartens for Vulnerable Children in Darfur

Summary

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. 98% of mothers in Darfur are illiterate. They begged us to help educate their children. Our first kindergarten opened in the village of Abu Nahla in December 2013; we opened 3 more in 2015 and are hoping to build 5 more in 2017! Can you help?

Challenge

Education is a key pathway out of poverty but few children in Darfur have the chance of going to school early enough to enable them to complete their education. The lack of mental stimulation during the crucial formative early years diminishes the development potential of children forever. There are already 78 Kids for Kids' villages, and to date we have built just four Kindergartens. There is nothing else like this in Darfur. We need your urgent help please, to get more children to school.

Solution

KIDS FOR KIDS will build and equip as many kindergartens as you help us fund. Each one will initially have 2 brick built classrooms, a small office and 2 latrines. The project will also provide furniture, blackboards; play equipment and educational materials, playground equipment (slide, etc.), sports equipment, musical instruments, modelling clay, books, educational tools for numeracy and literacy, and art materials; uniforms, teacher training, water tank, trees and a donkey cart 'school bus'!

Long-Term Impact

The early years education and interaction provided by our Kindergartens will give a solid foundation to every child's ability to learn, enabling them to reach their full potential when they move up to 'big' school. Although we are asking for help to build Kindergartens, as funds allow we already know we need to enlarge our existing ones because of the huge demand. However, as all our villages are in need, we are aiming to provide a Kindergarten in each before we will start enlarging schools.
