KYGN - Tanzania - Completes phase one

KYGN - Tanzania - Completes phase one

There is cause for celebration in Tanzania as the new school building at KYGN has opened and classes are already being held despite the torrential rain which hampered the construction. GAGA UK assisted with the funding of this new school building. A much needed asset to the community and the 250 children who are using it. Well done to the KYGN team both here in the UK and in Tanzania.

Hillcrest AIDS centre waste no time

Hillcrest AIDS centre waste no time

At the last board meeting in March, the decision was made to grant funds to Hillcrest AIDS centre to train a new nurse and also help the centre to employ a Hospice driver (someone who could help with the collection and taxiing of patients). The nurse being trained has been chosen from current volunteers based in the respite unit of Hillcrest AIDS centre, and the training will take two years.

You can read the report from HACT about this funding here.

Charlie’s Trip to RSA April 2014

A lot has been going on in April. We moved office to Stratford-upon-Avon at the end of March, and then Charlie went off to South Africa for his biennual projects check-up. If you missed his blog click here.   It was a very positive trip and a lot was achieved during his two week stay. A lot of work also came out of the trip and there are some exciting projects coming forward.
