Mother Teresa’s Reading Shelter in Buntong is running a free preschool programme, “Mother Teresa’s Kindercare” for underprivileged children who are six years old and soon to begin formal education in 2012. The programme provides education for children from poor families, parents who are terminally ill and from orphanages. The children are provided free books, bags, stationery, uniform, shoes and resource materials. Healthy refreshments are given during break time and free transport is provided.
The programme focuses on reading and writing essentials with hands-on learning. It provides wholesome and integrated education to enable underprivileged children to reach their holistic potential. Holiday classes are held for the children mainly to interact with other children.
There are seven students and one full-time teacher and three more students will be joining soon. The programme is fully funded by donations received from well-wishers. Those wishing to sponsor can call Jacquelene at 05-2410751.
