PRESCHOOL/DAY CARE CENTER IN PATHEIN PRISON

Children up to age 5 living in prison with incarcerated mothers will be allowed to attend this preschool day center located on prison property.  Teachers and social workers and meals will be provided by the prison,  the community and the regional government.  To our knowledge,  no other foreign individual or organization has been given access to the prisons of Myanmar.  This project has been supported at the federal level and there are 39 more prisons in Myanmar which we are now discussing with the federal Director General of prisons.
