See What Your Donations Have Built!

Please join us this Saturday afternoon, 3:00-4:00 p.m. ET (12:00-1:00 p.m. PT) for the dedication of Gatoto Primary School’s spacious and modern new classroom building - funded by our AFG community. This building significantly improves the educational experience of so many children, and we can’t wait to celebrate what we have built together.

Saturday’s Zoom event will include a look at the new building, and a dedication to Betty Nyagoha, Gatoto’s beloved founder and longtime head. Speakers in Kenya and here will celebrate Betty’s vision for the school, and discuss the current situation and future possibilities for Gatoto and the G.I.D.P program in Mukuru kwa Ruben.

Zoom Details:

Saturday, December 4th, 3:00–4:00 ET., 12:00–1:00 PT.

The fundraiser is open to all who are interested in Gatoto so please share with others we may not have contacts for. With Covid restrictions and without Betty’s energy and fundraising experience, 2021 has been a tough funding year for Gatoto. We need to find additional support. We hope that Gatoto’s budget gap can be matched by the stronger American economy, and our increased national generosity for people in need. Please tell friends or foundations about our terrific school that feeds, educates and nurtures 1,000 children who have few other options. 

See you soon!
