KUCHING: It was sheer joy for Barefoot Mercy co-founder Anna Wee when she set eyes on Penan kindergarten Tadika Pawah’s completed building for the first time.

This was a project the Sarawak-based vo­­lunteer organisation had been working on for the past year in collaboration with Persatuan Perkembangan Pendidikan Orang Pribumi, which runs the kindergarten in Long Lamam, a remote Penan village in the Baram district.
