Education is vital to any child, no matter their geographic location, ability, or gender. This offers children a helping hand to learn, improve and achieve anything by giving them the resources to develop into a strong asset for their community. Singing Gorilla Projects have built several classrooms to allow these children to improve their learning journeys. The cost to school a child for a year is £170, please donate where possible to help these children have the best start to their educational journey possible.
SGP will provide funding for St Joseph's Vocational School, to enable the facility to provide services. The Vocational School will charge fees to children who do not have SGP scholarships. Whilst it is expected that the fees from all the children will be adequate to fund the teaching staff, it is expected that SGP will have to “kick-start” the funding of teachers in 2022 additionally.
The following vocational course will be considered for funding in 2022:
