What is GETA?

GETA - Giving Education To All is a group of volunteers from the UK, who were inspired to support St Theresa's Nursery & Primary school in Uganda after meeting Fr Paul Bigirwa, a Founder Member & Director of NGO organisation 'Sustainable Action for Rural Sector' aka 'SARS (Uganda)'.

Fr Paul's keen sense of social justice & moral responsibility have been the driving force behind the inception & implementation of a number of life-enhancing health, education & poverty alleviation projects in rural Uganda. 

St Theresa's Nursery & Primary School was founded by Fr Paul in 2015 and following GETA's inception all fundraising activity has provided support for the ongoing education of pupils at this school.

Please check back in soon for our fundraising activities that are planned for 2020.

David completed the Cabbage Patch run in a creditable time of 1h 35m 01s in ideal running conditions. As a result of our supporters' generosity - i.e. you - we have raised a a fantastic £1,025 to go towards funding the boys' dormitory; approximately £250 due from Gift Aid further boosts this...

This was the route Rachel and I ran - a wet and windy event with a couple of treacherously muddy bits - but very enjoyable nevertheless and a very good time of 1h 1m 48secs despite the conditions. Looking forward to same again next year!

Keep me Educated!
