GTU RECEIVES DONATIONS OF BICYCLES

The Gambia Teachers’ Union receives a donation of Twenty-Two bicycles from the Steve Sinnott Foundation earmarked for school-going children in the rural Gambia.

The Steve Sinnott Foundation is a long-term partner of The Gambia Teachers’ Union. Over the years and recently, they have funded a series of programs geared towards improving the status of education in the country.

Children in most parts of rural Gambia trek to school. The donated bicycles are expected to ease the mobility of school-going children commuting long distances to school.

GTU CONDUCTS TRAINING FOR HOME SCIENCE TEACHERS.

Barely a month after conducting a training for Sixty Home Science Teachers in Region 2 on the making of reusable pads, the Gambia Teachers’ Union has organized a similar training for Thirty Home Science Teachers in Region 1.

The training held at the GTU Secretariat in Kanifing is meant to equip the teachers with the skills of making reusable sanitary pads.

Access to sanitary pads by school going girls is a challenge. Some girls often skip school as a result of not accessing sanitary pads.

The First Vice President-GTU, Saffie Nyassi said, with this training teachers will be able to make pads that could be access by students at no cost. She said the reusable sanitary pads are healthy, environmentally friendly, and could last for about two years. She urged the teachers to take the training seriously while encouraging them to share the knowledge gained.

The training is funded by the Steve Sinnott Foundation.
