Little Angels Playground
In early 2019 G.E.T held its first volunteer from New Zealand, Daniela Hunt. Daniela through her company Dee-Licious MakeUp ran a fashion show fundraiser for the Growth Educational Trust.
Dee's goal was to raise enough funds to send one student onto Secondary school for 6 years through our Scholarship programme and create an amazing playground for the children at G.E.T's inaugural partner school Little Angels.
Water Tanks for Murandi
In 2017 we provided water tanks for the community of Murandi. The community of Murandi is located over one kilometre from Lake Bunyonyi, which is situated at around 2000m above sea level. Murandi has no power and no running water.
We completed a water harvest project in Murandi, acquiring four 5000-litre water tanks for over 700 families. These where placed in four different villages around the community for everyone's benefit. It's our hope that these will help cut down the number of drownings while people fetch water and help more children attend school every day.
School Life Jackets
We aquired 55 Life Jackets at a cheaper price through The Warehouse, New Zealand, to improve the children’s safety while undertaking their commute to and from school.
DHL NZ and DHL Uganda came on board and kindly shipped the Life Jackets from New Zealand to Uganda.
