It's great fun working with GEF and I get a real buzz when I receive letters and messages from John. It's been so satisfying to see him making great progress with his education.

 

I'm very proud of him.

The Gathimba Edwards Foundation plays a vital role in supporting children and young people in Kenya and carries out some amazing work in helping those who are less fortunate.

 

We have now supported three school children in Kenya gain education and the feedback heard back has been hugely positive and what we like to think of as life-changing.

In our experience, GEF are absolutely trustworthy and work with 100% integrity. We know Myles, Gideon and the rest of the team personally, and we can see directly the impact that the sponsorship money makes.

 

In almost 10 years of partnership we've had nothing but positive experiences. If you want to do something truly impactful, then I would strongly recommend supporting Gathimba Edwards Foundation.
