South African BBQ is a sell out

South African BBQ is a sell out

Last week we held our South African BBQ here at the GAGA office in Stratford upon Avon. The event was a roaring success. As our first BBQ of the year, we were happy that it was a complete sell out (we had to do an extra supermarket run as we sold out that quickly!). We raised a fantastic £264.70. Thank you to Big Red Recruitment who gift us free office space, and came out to support us on the day. We hope to hold another couple of BBQs over the summer, so watch this space and come along to try an ostrich burger! 

The Week Ahead

The Week Ahead

Next Monday we will be hosting our AGM and a Board meeting here at the office in Stratford Upon Avon. All 5 Trustees plan to be in attendance and it will be Charlie's final meeting with the Board of Trustees as Director of GAGA. There are a number of issues on the agenda and as always, if you are interested in attending a meeting please contact us and we will make the necessary arrangements. 

 Over the next week Sarah and Charlie will also be continuing with organising the South African BBQ to be held on Friday 24th April just outside of the GAGA office in Cygnet Court, Stratford upon Avon. If you're around, pop in for an ostrich burger!

Schools re-open in Sierra Leone today

Schools re-open in Sierra Leone today

Good news for schools in Sierra Leone today as they reopen after 8 months. Although there's a long way to go to get life back to some kind of normality after the Ebola crisis, at least for pupils and staff at the schools, it's a start. GAGA, in connection with Alan Wolstencroft, support 3 schools in Sierra Leone and we look forward to hearing updates from them on how their pupils are re-adjusting.

The Ebola crisis has caused much devastation and precautions against the disease must continue. Over 3,800 people lost their lives in Sierra Leone, to Ebola, bringing new problems to communities already struggling with poverty and disease.

KYGN, Tanzania makes progress

KYGN, Tanzania makes progress

Great to get some pictures of the new dormitory being built in Tanzania by KYGN. GAGA UK granted £3000 to KYGN UK to help with this construction project, which will enable the children attending KYGN, Tanzania School to board if they live far away and/or if they have vulnerable backgrounds. The school and dormitory are in Mabongi, Tanzania.

We will continue to update you with the progress as we receive the updates from KYGN.
