Sponsoring at Sunrise

Fees charged at Sunrise are deliberately lower than  those charged in other private schools and skills centres as GETS want to make a good education more affordable for Gambian families.

Sunrise fees only contribute about 20% to the cost of educating each student at the Centre, GETS subsidises the rest of the cost. 

Some GETS supporters give regular donations towards the cost of running the Sunrise Centre to help us keep the fees as low as possible for parents.

Despite the low cost some parents find it difficult to find money for the fees and we hope some of our supporters will be able to help them. If you would like to sponsor a student at Sunrise, £10 a month could pay the fees and also help to support our staff salaries and training, thus helping not just one student but a whole class.

The great advantage of sponsoring at Sunrise is that GETS has control over the quality of education provided, and is in daily contact with the students, unlike the situation with sponsored students in other schools.

Please contact Dawn, our sponsorship secretary, if you would like more information or download and complete our sponsorship form if you would like to sponsor a student at Sunrise.

Sponsoring students at other schools

Over 500 children have been provided with an education thanks to the generosity of GETSís  supporters. Before we opened Sunrise Centre, sponsorship of individual children was the basis of GETSís work in The Gambia, children introduced to us by  tourists wishing to support a child whom they knew. However GETS have reluctantly decided they can no longer accept new requests from tourists due to the pressures of administrating the growing Sunrise Centre. Present sponsorships will of course, still be continued to be managed by GETS.

Sponsor a class

 We also offer the opportunity to sponsor a class at Sunrise - this way you are helping not just one child but many. We ask that you donate a minimum of £5 a month, this money going towards things like classroom resources, teacher salaries and daily meals. New sponsors get a welcome pack containing a guide to sponsorship together with a class profile and photo. All class sponsors will get termly updates on the class with a message from the teacher and the termly GETS newsletter. There will also be the possibility to interact with the class through email messages and an invitation to visit your class whenever you are in Gambia.

normally held in August or early September
