Our Mission

Generating growth for African children and communities devastated by HIV-AIDS and poverty, through the goodwill of people in the UK and elsewhere

Telling the GAGA story

Because our organisation rests on the goodwill of people here in the UK and elsewhere a very important part of the help we need from our supporters is to raise awareness of GAGA and the work that we do.

We are interested in identifying and taking as many opportunities as possible to:

  • Connect with like-minded people who share our concerns and our desire to make a difference,
  • Explain the work that we are doing and the projects we are involved in,
  • Have input into shaping a better future in Africa.

You can help us to achieve these goals in two ways: You can invite us to talk to groups, community organisations and policy makers, and you can use social media to spread the word.


Invite us to talk

We are often invited to visit and address groups who are keen to find out about us and these have included churches, Rotary Clubs, U3A groups, WIs, schools and scout groups as well as political and community organisations.

Our speaker

The presentation is given by our Director, Claire. She spent her childhood in Southern Africa and continues to have great empathy for the rural communities who often face the biggest challenges, even in countries where the economy and social care provision is improving.   Claire volunteered with GAGA for a couple of years before joining the team in the role of Director.  She has visited all of the South African projects and maintains close contact with our project leaders and their work whilst she is back in the UK, raising awareness and funds for these life changing projects.

The Presentation

Claire has a natural, open style and whilst we have an extensive library of photographs and can rattle off statistics, we find that the personal stories and recollections are the most engaging for most audiences.  We can tailor our talk to the audience, their interests and the age group.  We are open to discussion and enjoy a lively Q&A session, so don't be shy!

If you would like us to talk to a community organisation, society, group or a  political and campaigning organisation, society or group, please call us on 01789 414088 or email us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it to arrange a date.

"I just wanted to get in touch and say how much I enjoyed your talk at the breakfast event on Saturday." RF; member of Holy Trinity Hatton Ladies Breakfast March 2019

"We loved the energy of your talk, and (because the projector didn't work) not having pictures somehow made it all the more vibrant, as it was from the heart" JA; Bretforton U3A, February 2019

I thought your presentation was excellent - You got across your commitment to the work of GAGA without sounding too earnest and the touches of humour were nicely judged.  Your personal style is natural, modest and engaging.Patrick Staines President Evesham Rotary Club 2010 – 2011

Just a short line to say a big thank you for your presentation on your work for GAGA last night. It was a very interesting and inspiring talk. Carolyn Marshal President Leek Wottoon WI 2012 - 2013
