Our Mission

Generating growth for African children and communities devastated by HIV-AIDS and poverty, through the goodwill of people in the UK and elsewhere

Why Africa?

One of Africa’s biggest challenges is its perception outside of the continent. It is a large continent with 54 countries in total, each remarkably different, from north to south and east to west.

It is widely recognised that the continent of Africa is experiencing a "third surge" of interest in it's potential as, according to UN predictions, there will be more Africans than Chinese people by 2025.  Whilst this brings immense opportunity, it also brings challenges and it is generally agreed that Africa's future depends upon education.  Through education Africa's youth can be shown that they have a future in Africa and that there is hope for them and their families.  Young people need to have the chance to establish careers for themselves.
It is for that reason that many of the initiatives GAGA partners with focus on education or act as enablers to access education.  In South Africa, we support several early childhood development (ECD) projects, from creche's to preschools and low primary schools as well as providing scholarships to students to complete tertiary level education.  We also support projects that help the rural communities as a whole, like a primary healthcare clinic as we believe that health, nutrition and education are key enablers to lift indivduals and communities out of poverty and disadvantage.  In Tanzania, we support a primary school and safe house, so that girls can access education and have a safe place to live and study.
"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world" Nelson Mandela
Poverty is an undermining, divisive, destroying force, breaking up families, communities and helping disease persist. Solving poverty which is at the root of most, if not all, Africa’s problems will encourage growth and development. GAGA works mainly in South Africa but we have connections with the following countries too. These fact sheets from UN offer a very informative view of poverty, disease, and the challenges these countries are facing.
"Overcoming poverty is not a gesture of charity, it is an act of JUSTICE" Nelson Mandela
Despite these challenges we also need to celebrate success. Some facts about Africa can be very surprising and show the clear steps this continent and its many countries are making in going forward.
