"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together" African Proverb

Here at GAGA UK we truly do believe that #togetherwecanchangelives We're a small charity but we have big ideas and to the communities we support in some of the poorest, rural areas of southern Africa, we are changing their lives.  Whether it's the orphans we sponsor through university, the student we assist with their transport so that they can get to school or the child who visits one of the healthcare facilities we support, without us, without you, no-one would be there to offer that help.

That's why a loyal group of supporters are critical to the continuation of what we do.  We cannot commit to funding a student through a three year degree course unless we know we can see it through.  We don't want a child who is just receiving the care they need to recover from illness or abuse to loose that again because funding stops.
