What is GETA?

"GETA - Give Education To All" was formed in 2014 as a Charitable Trust by a group of volunteers from St Margaret of Scotland Catholic Church, Twickenham, UK who were inspired to support St Theresa's Nursery & Primary School (STNPS) 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?

Last Sunday afternoon - 20th March - a fabulous number of families, and individuals, young and old took part in the Lenten fund-raising fun run. People ran, walked, scooted and cycled along the fabulous two-mile route along Twickenham Embankment, Riverside and around Marble Hill park.

GETA has been selected as the Overseas Charity for St Margaret's Lenten Project this year. The project raises funds through Parish initiatives and fundraising events, and our share of the funds will go towards two major projects:

A really big thank you to the organisers and participants at the latest "Men's Breakfast" at St Margaret of Scotland Catholic Church for an insightful presentation by Peter Desmond on the sequel to COP 26, titled not unsurprisingly "COP 27 - The Sequel".
