GAAP COMPUTER TRAINING 2019 – Mondays to Thursdays between 10:00am till 2:00pm

 

THE BASIC IDEA

Here is to host computer training sessions for kids between the ages of 7-12 from 3 orphanage homes (5 kids from each home) from Monday through Thursdays for 2 weeks between the times of 10:00am and 2:00pm

IT IS A WIN-WIN

As kids from orphanage homes will be reached out to and taught about basic knowledge of computer and its usage, thereby giving them a chance in life to have quick start through ICT skills. The aim actually, is to very soon; bring the kids to the knowledge of programming and more advanced skills of ICT.
With this, a home or three as in this case, Gaap is able to reach out to kids and offer them advanced education. It will be our joy to help these kids excel.
MORE GIST INTO THE IDEA.. ..Or some more boring details.
With the help of volunteers(who will be teaching the kids or helping out with simple tasks and activities) we will be making this happen at the Gaap educational center during the period that these kids will be on break from school.

They will be expected to eat every morning from their respective homes before coming down to the center (as we will not be making provision for food, but snacks for the kids, their care givers or the volunteers) in company of one care giver.

Each home is expected to bring the kids with their own vehicle and take them back. Whichever home is unable to, we might look into ordering a ride for them.

OUR DEAR VOLUNTEERS

We might want to look into helping with their transportation to and from the Gaap edu center during this period.
TO ENCOURAGE THE KIDS.. We will have quizzes daily or at the end of both weeks and rewards, depending on the curriculum to be developed with the facilitator
RESOURCES During this period, we will need ;

Cleaning agents
Operating systems installed in some computers
Servicing the generator
Fuel to run the generator
Snacks (cartons of biscuits, sweets etc.)
Water
Packets of small boxes of juice
Transportation cost for the volunteers

FREE EMERGENCY 1ST AID TRAINING & CHILD NUTRITION! – PART 1

24 -26 October 2018

Below is the timeline of the event with GAAP Trustees and support Teams carrying out numerous tasks for the event.

Our Chairman, Abbey Orebanwo along with Tony Snow (GAAP trustee) and Angela Tillet (Illumina Lifestyle Consulting) departed from the UK via Heathrow airport days before the start date of the event.

Needless to say they were all very early risers and coffee was a real neccesity hence why, the photo below acts as evidence showing Tony Snow about to take a sip of his very strong Columbian brew!

 

Apparently breakfast was fantastic and provided the energy required for the flight.

Their flight lasted well over 6 hours and on arriving at Murtala Mohammed airport, the team was met by some of our Nigerian GAAP trustees. The trustees headed back to base camp – The GEC Centre.

GAAP Refurbishment

 

The Computer room

The GEC centre was set up to cater for all attendees with all training/seminar resources display and targetted for ease of access.

How it all went at the Neuro-Development Disorder Awareness & ABA Training Edition – 28th September 2017

The event went really well and the objective, which was to raise awareness within the community proved to have been a worthwhile exercise as the attendance was good and a lot of attendees left with relevant referral materials.

Attendance was just under 100! Professionals were at hand to deliver the various topics and provide answers to questions.

March 2014 – Tony Snow half Marathon – Eastbourne

GAAP Trustee Tony Snow will be participating in the Eastbourne Half Marathon in March 2014 and is seeking sponsorship as part of our initiative to raise funds for the construction of the GAAP Education Centre. He has set two bold targets:
 
1. To run the 13.1 mile distance in UNDER 2 hours.
2. To raise £1,000 and give a big boost to the fundraising effort for the GAAP Educational Centre
 
Training is coming along nicely, Tony tells us, but its starting to dawn on him that the distance is quite a long way to go! Your support will make that training a bit easier – so give what you can!

About The GAAP Resource Center

The GAAP Resource Center will offer Computing, Library, Arts and Crafts and Play Facilities to orphans and abandoned children aged 9 to 16. The planned opening is summer 2014.

 

Stage 1: Security (Jan – late Feb 2014)

External building modifications are required to create a safe and effective environment for the children we support.

Works started January 2014 with the demolition of an insecure low wall and building of new, higher security wall with an external guarded security station. The resource centre will also be painted to give it a fresh appeal to its users. We expect stage 1 to complete by late February.

Planned overview
Stage 2 will tackle the interior design, Stage 3 will look at the staffing requirements and liaisons with the homes we support, and Stage 4, will concentrate upon The Grand Opening. Details on each new stage will be provided as we enter that phase.

The GAAP Resource Center, Lagos Nigeria had works completed to the exterior during the 3rd week of February, and we are so grateful to everyone who donated to make this happen.

 

Phase 2: The Interior (April – May 2014)

As it stands, the interior is dated and needs a complete redesign to convert it into a beautiful and welcoming child friendly space that the children we support will love and be eager to return to. Works will begin imminently and we expect to complete by mid-March 2014.

Images and updates will be posted over the next few days.
