Real Medicine moved funding from the Tangalle Children’s Relay Preschool to a school in Palathuduwa, a new location starting in February of 2010, just 2 kilometers inland from the Tangalle School. As the Tangalle Preschool was able to take over more of it’s own management and financial support, our staff was approached to support this small preschool in a much poorer village nearby. We are currently supporting 15 students at this new location through the following strategies — work with guardians and caretakers to assist in proper caretaking of the children; educate children in the area to ensure health awareness and proper sanitation; provide the children with nutritious meals; educate children about their environment, integrating eco-awareness and outdoor activities into their routines; educate them about natural disasters and environmental pollution, including small skills they can utilize to help preserve their surroundings; diversity education about cultural and ethnic diversity in their community, including exercises aimed at increasing tolerance and understanding of differences; give lessons to children about modern communication technologies, including the use of mobile phones; continue Basic English knowledge education in a practical setting.
