By supporting a Child Care project in the western suburbs of Sydney, Mercy Works has enabled the Baabayn Aboriginal Corporation to provide a culturally sensitive program each Wednesday. While the children embrace enthusiastically basic pre-school activities, their mothers participate in a program to help improve mental health and confidence through a cultural exploration of different artistic media.
This program enables the young mothers and their children access to services they would not have due to their lower economic status. The provision of early learning services has helped to prepare the children for transition into the next stage of their educational journey.
This project has proved to be a refuge for the Mums while providing an educational experience for their children!
