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.
