What is our goal in the long run?
G.A.E.3I.N. is a young, creative and dynamic non-profit company which aims to assist and co-operate with government, organisations and communities to make a difference in the lives of mainly disadvantaged young people and women. These people want to excel, and can do so, but are faced with many challenges, personally and structurally, in communities that themselves struggle with societal issues that impact and retard progress.
G.A.E.3I.N. is a non-profit company that adopts the principle of utilizing sponsor funds to uplift and empower communities. We seek donors who are willing to sponsor disadvantaged young people and women to enrol for our skills programs and initiatives.Your funds are used to train, uplift and empower learners and delegates. None of this money is used for administration or fundraising expenses.

to work towards instilling a recycling mindset in our future generations."
