Tutu's Story

Tutu's Story

Here at GAGA, we want to turn lives around and that's something we're proud to say we were able to help Tutu with.

Thanks to the support of one of our major donors, as well as all our regular supporters, we were able to help Tutu through her university education. Due to the high costs of higher education in South Africa, she would not have been able to achieve her degree without assistance.

'I am one of the luckiest girls who had the opportunity to go to varsity to study and become something in this world because of GAGA... After four years of hard work, I am now a qualified Physiotherapist. Something I have always wished for but back then didn't seem possible due to certain circumstances but because of the support received from GAGA, it was possible. I am now employed by the Kwa-Zulu Natal department of health as a Junior Physiotherapist working at a Tertiary Hospital in Durban. ... I  am really thankful to GAGA and my sponsor. I don't know where I'd be in life if it wasn't for them... There are no words that could express how thankful I am.'

Our support for 1000 Hills continues, with your help

Our support for 1000 Hills continues, with your help

This photo is from 1000 Hills Community Helpers.

GAGA UK provide funding to support their rural clinic, thanks to your donations.

1000 Hills have specific days at the clinic where the elderly can come for medical care as well as support in a whole variety of other ways. They can sit and chat with others, have a good meal, ask for advice, and feel loved and cared for.

The clinic also have a special baby day. Mums and babies can visit the clinic for advice on breastfeeding amongst other things. They get support from other new mums as well as the staff at the clinic. They can also receive a new baby pack full of useful bits and pieces.

Why is this all so important?

1000 Hills' vision is to improve the lives of HIV/AIDS affected children and adults in their local communities through treatment, clinics, feeding schemes, counselling, home-based care, creches and support groups. Part of their mission statement says 'we will love and teach our community that together we can make a difference.' We truly believe this here at GAGA too and we're proud to support their clinic. Your donations can help alleviate the suffering of the elderly and children in distress. A £5 donation could help 5 new mums access much needed support and care.

Together we can help to give hope where there is none. You can read more about 1000 Hills here.

KYGN, Tanzania, gets excellent results!

KYGN, Tanzania, gets excellent results!

KYGN (a school in rural Tanzania), have recently received their Primary 4 results and they show just how successful the school is becoming.

KYGN came 4th out of 193 schools in Moshi, 66 out of 627 schools in the Kilimajaro region and 600th out of the 5123 schools (both state and private schools) in Tanzania.

Huge congratulations to everyone involved in KYGN's work. As KYGN UK say 'it just shows what can happen when children are given a fair chance. All of us, as donors and supporters, should feel a warm glow too!'

At the end of last year GAGA UK decided to assist KYGN with the building of a tilapia fish pond. Your donations could help KYGN raise their own funds and increase their sustainability.

Your donations can make a huge difference. We think it's such an exciting project and can't wait to keep you updated!

You can read a little more about the fishin project here.
