Girls World: Summer Camps Inauguration Ceremony [Archives:2002/33/Local News]
On Thursday August 8, Girls World Communication Center celebrated its fourth summer camp open ceremony in the premises of the center in Sanaa. The ceremony was attended by the students families and a number of guests. The students displayed creative works impressing the attending crowd. The Administrative Director of the center, Ms. Entelak al-Mutawakel expressed her hope in that every educational institution would take the center as an example to follow as this attempt is considered the first in its kind and has been implemented by the center itself with no involvement of second parties in its organization.
However, we can not deny that some organizations did cooperate in sponsoring the event including Shell, Total, Canadian Nexen, British Council and Amideast, which we thank very much Ms. Entelak commented.
The center has guaranteed especial active summer vacation packages for girls to encourage them to practice new skills and exploit their hidden talents. We work here to help girls coming from low-income families work and study. Through this center, some hard working and intelligent girls managed to get scholarships she added.
We are going to design an integral curriculum through which we can raise awareness about a lot of issues that concern the society including social, environmental and health issues. The center has a magnificent library established with collaboration of British Council, and which contains language books and references she said.
The center adopted a diploma program to rehabilitate the secondary school graduate girls, who have to wait for one full year before enrolling into the university. The center ensures that this year is spent on useful activities including learning English, computer, internet and other various activities.
