A Lesson in Empowerment
Pusat Minda Mesra is the Childcare Centre that was set up in Air Banun in response to the requests of the indigenous community living in this area. This centre has been operating since January 2014 and is run solely by the Orang Asal themselves. They are using an innovative Curriculum-In-A-Box, which is part of the BRAINetwork Neuroplastic Curriculum. This curriculum is being evaluated by BRAINetwork as well as by the Orang Asal themselves. Part of this project is also supported by the Mattel Children’s Foundation which has provided the toys that are being used in the Curriculum-In-A Box concept. Thank you Mattel for making this project a reality.
