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.
OUR NEW PROJECT HAS BEEN COMPLETED!
2018: Gary's Fund is proud to announce the completion of the Masizakhe Pre-School in South Africa. Two new classrooms have been built along with an outdoor covered concrete play area and completely renovated restrooms and kitchen. We plan to provide funding for two teachers to receive formal training in 2019.
