Camana Bay Christmas Give Focus on Sunrise Adult Training Centre

Sunrise Adult Training Centre, a government-operated agency, provides training, support and services for the empowerment, employment and independence of adults with disabilities in the Cayman Islands through a team of dedicated and caring staff, while raising public awareness of adults with disabilities as contributing members 
of our society.

This month, the national adult special-needs centre in West Bay celebrates 26 years of operation. Established in November 1986, the programme began as a response to an abnormally high number of Caymanians exhibiting symptoms of a rare genetic disorder. Now known as Cayman Cerebella Ataxia, the disorder affects the cerebellum of the brain and causes the area to be underdeveloped, leading to impaired speech, motor skills and other health issues.

Today, the programme helps more than 60 adults living with disabilities in Grand Cayman live a fuller life by providing them with the care and skills they need to become responsible, productive and fully functioning members of the community. Training opportunities include daily life and fundamental skills instruction, fitness and recreational activities, pre-vocational and vocational training and supervised job placement.

Sunrise Adult Training Centre advocates the importance of showing members of our society living with disabilities that they have not been forgotten and strives to educate the local community on the importance of giving disabled community members the chance to live a normal, happy life, too.

Embrace the spirit of the giving season and donate money at Camana Bay Christmas Give collection boxes located in participating Town Centre merchants. Donations will go towards Sunrise Adult Training Centre recreational activities and treats for its clients throughout the holidays and beyond.
