from GETS this week

2010 to January 2011  

The original building was built by SOS and then handed over to the Bakoteh community to run in 2005.
Following the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding with the Bakoteh Village Development Committee in June 2010, which allows GETS to operate the Centre, it has been renamed Sunrise Centre and is now run by GETS with Helen Touray as Centre Director. Our existing nursery at Bakoteh has been integrated into the Centre.

The Sunrise Centre opened in January 2011 with Skills classes for 80 young adults (15-24 years) teaching English, Maths, Tie and Dye, Cookery and Sewing and 2 Nursery classes for 48 4-7 year olds. 

By July 2011 
GETS trustees, advisors and volunteers were at the Centre from January, assisting in the classrooms, clearing the site and helping in the administration office. 

Signs have been put up around the site to direct people to the Centre. The Centre is well used by the community for events and meetings.

All staff and students now have uniforms provided by GETS and made from material tie dyed by our Skills Classes.
