There's been a baby boom in the valley of 1000 Hills and demand for places in the 1000 HCH baby room has never been higher. Providing a safe place for these babies means that their Mum's can resume their education or working life knowing that their little ones will be safe for the day. To help with the operational costs we're launching a Twin a Cot scheme linking cots at nurseries in the UK with a cot in KwaZulu Natal - can you help? Read more

Thank you for visiting the page in Loving Memory of Guinevere Ventress. Born in KwaZulu Natal in March 1925, she lived much of her life in that province of South Africa. This formed the basis of the connection with GAGA UK, which supports grassroots projects working in the Valley of 1000 Hills near Kloof where Guinevere lived for many years.
Leave a lasting legacy that will continue to change lives and strengthen communities for generations to come.
"We can change the world and make it a better place. It is in your hands to make a difference" Nelson Mandela

At the same time, we try to focus on the ongoing needs that are out of the headlines but remain nonetheless.
