What is GETA?

"GETA - Give Education To All" was formed in 2014 as a Charitable Trust by a group of volunteers from the UK who were inspired to support St Theresa's Nursery & Primary school in Uganda; this was after meeting Fr Paul Bigirwa, the Founder & Director of a Ugandan NGO 'Sustainable Action for the Rural Sector' aka 'SARS'.

Fr Paul's keen sense of social justice & moral responsibility have been the driving force behind the development 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 2010 and, after GETA became a charity in 2015, all our fundraising efforts have supported the ongoing education of pupils at this school.

What's happening?

Perfect running weather for this event - dry with the temperature in the mid-teens so no chance of heatstroke!. I completed the course in the official time of 1h 33m 37s and an age grading of 62.68%. I have it on good authority that anything over 60% is regarded as "good", so I am very pleased...

This year has been tough for everyone and no-one has been left untouched by the pandemic. It has been especially hard for the children and families of St Theresa’s school, but at GETA we are so fortunate to have supporters who, despite their own hardships, have been so...

A huge thank you to our supporters for your ongoing generosity that has enabled the completion of the boys' dormitory, teachers’ quarters and laid the foundations of the girls' dormitory at St Theresa’s school.
