How it all went at the GAAP Picnic Held on 13th April 2018!

Our project manager Rachael recently organised a Picnic for all the orphans! Well the plan was to commute to one of the beaches in and around Lagos but due to transportation problems the Picnic had to be relocated and was held at the Red Cross orphanage home! Photos below!


The day was a success with all the children getting engaged with drawing, painting whilst simulating a picnic environment by tucking into food and drinks!

As the day drew to a close, the end result included the following well constructed diagrams drawn by very skillful team of children! The diagrams included drawings of Mickey Mouse, A coconut fruit and an attempt at drawing a Dinosaur! Well done for trying. 


Our Chairman and Founder is now looking to arrange a GAAP 2019 Picnic. We are all looking forward to it with great anticipation!

How it all went at the Neuro-Development Disorder Awareness & ABA Training Edition – 28th September 2017

The event went really well and the objective, which was to raise awareness within the community proved to have been a worthwhile exercise as the attendance was good and a lot of attendees left with relevant referral materials.

Attendance was just under 100! Professionals were at hand to deliver the various topics and provide answers to questions.

I aim to raise money for GAAP Orphanage Foundation’s (Nigeria) current education centre by climbing the Snowdonia 7.

Running 7 peaks, 22 miles in less than 10 hours for Gaap Orphanage Foundation because I want to help fund this so needed charity

On the 4 th July  with work colleagues in a team of 4 we are travelling 22miles over 7 peaks in the Snowdonia  National Park. The journey is approximately 22 miles long and must be done in less than 10 hours  carrying safety kit to complete the challenge successfully.

I’m completing this gruelling fell run to provide some help to the abandoned children in Nigeria who face real challenges on a day to day basis.

It would really make such a difference if you could support my challenge.

Thanks very much for your support.

GAAP Trustee Tony Snow will be participating in the Eastbourne Half Marathon in March 2014 and is seeking sponsorship as part of our initiative to raise funds for the construction of the GAAP Education Centre. He has set two bold targets:
1. To run the 13.1 mile distance in UNDER 2 hours.
2. To raise £1,000 and give a big boost to the fundraising effort for the GAAP Educational Centre
Training is coming along nicely, Tony tells us, but its starting to dawn on him that the distance is quite a long way to go! Your support will make that training a bit easier – so give what you can!
