The Madar Group is a weekly group run by Amity Health at MBCC for Afghani women and pre-school children. It offers AMEP English classes delivered by Albany TAFE, shared craft activities and Wanslea Children’s Services run activities for the children. There is a strong emphasis on school readiness for the children, including confidence in speaking English.
Usually the group is based at KP3 which had been fantastic for developing the children’s familiarity with the Kindy area.
The group started in 2014 has been warmly welcomed by the Afghani community. Participants take it in turns to bring a delicious Afghani meal each week, and a highlight of each morning is all sitting on the floor together and sharing food. It is really a lovely group to be part of and we are very glad to part of the MBCC community.
