Learning practical skills at SAP
SAP's educational centre for out-of-school children is open every weekday all year round. The timetable for the children is structured and predictable, because many children have difficulties in time-orientation and easily loose track of what they are supposed to do. Within the timetable there is however variety. For example: every day there is a pre-vocational lesson at the same time, but the lessons vary. Through this, children take part in many different activities that all help them to improve their self-help skills and build their academic and practical competences.
Children tell us what they learn at SAP and what they appreciate about the programme:
Jennifer (12): "I really enjoy the beadmaking lessons and the cookery lessons. I wasn't good in basic cooking activities but now I am able to cook. I also like the number boards".
Akorley (14): "I enjoy the practical lessons very much especially the music and dance, cookery and batik lessons. I also like computer lessons because I have learnt how to boot a computer and how to use the mouse".
Isaac (13): "I like the classroom especially the FonixGH book which has helped me in knowing the sounds and now I can read. This makes me come to SAP everyday".
Enock (13): “SAP is really helping me. I enjoy the batik lessons and class activities. I didn’t like maths, but now I’m doing well. I now understand angles, long division and counting. The puzzle we play with also helps me a lot. Thank you to SAP.”
Robert (12): “At first, I couldn't wash dishes, clothes and bath without help. When I came to SAP, I have learnt how to brush, bath and wash all alone. I enjoy the way teachers at SAP teach. I really understand when they teach. I also like the computer classes at SAP. God Bless SAP.”
With your help we can continue to help children like Jennifer, Akorley, Isaac, Enock and Robert!
