The Gary Moser Memorial Fund for Africa (Gary's Fund) was established in 2004 with generous donations from family, friends and co-workers. It was created to honor Gary and his passionate professional and personal commitment to development work in Africa.
The mission of Gary's Fund is to provide the funding for the construction and/or rehabilitation of small schools, teacher training, and other small scale development projects in under served communities in Africa. It is our goal to help improve the quality of life and increase opportunities for future success for some of our world's most vulnerable people.
We are focused on providing support to pre-school and kindergarten programs. When the youngest children in impoverished communities have access to a safe and healthy educational environment and are instructed by trained teachers the entire community benefits immeasurably.
A NEW KENYAN SCHOOL PROJECT FOR 2020!
