Education center for electricians - Gambia
Since 2014 Gambia has his own power grid. Gradually several places are getting connected to the public power grid. Therefore, there’s an urgent need of new professionals for connecting and maintaining the individual houses to the system as well to repair the electrical devices, like for example refrigerators.
For this project, the foundation Gamrupa Europe asked the Ten Brinke foundation to support them with the realization of building an education school for electricians in Sifoe. The education center has place for 10 to 15 young people, to learn the theory and practice as well. For this, the students pay a small amount. This has te be the stimulation for them to successfully finish their education. The costs for the education and the teachers will be covered the first year by the income from small repairs by the students. Our foundation has covered the costs for the building, including the machines, education material and start-up costs.
