At the GA Foundation we believe that education is a powerful tool for empowerment and change. We believe that by empowering an individual, you create a better future for a family, for a community and the country.
The GA Foundation was founded in 1997 and we are proud to have been part of more than 30 of our employees’ children’s tertiary education thus far.
“I would like to thank everyone in the company who has assisted me in the funding of my studies, accommodation and meals.
I have had setbacks from the very beginning, but you guys backed and supported me.
I really appreciate the trust that you put in me in managing my studies on my own. I cannot express how satisfying it is to be allowed to study a field in which one aspires to be in.
There has been a few fails in my early years and yet you guys kept faith in me.
You have made my university career possible and with it you have allowed me to gain academic knowledge, cultural knowledge and cultivate many lifelong friendships and relationships.” – Jarryd George
