KYGN is so delighted to have the long term support of Global Footprints who have created a sustainable and lasting special relationship that has contributed to the success of KYGN. Global Footprints have been sending volunteer teams to KYGN since 2012 who have built classrooms, worked on the kitchen and helped build a new set of dormitories. They have raised funds for materials, done some of the construction personally and even purchased land for the buildings. Global footprints combine volunteering with local projects and challenging outdoor activities.

Surbiton High School
Surbiton High School is doing fantastic work for KYGN. Following a major fundraising campaign, Surbiton High School students have funded a new purpose built library. A team of Surbiton students went to Tanzania in 2016 to fit out the new library building. The project was the brainchild of school librarian, Joseph Humphreys, who visited KYGN in 2014 and is passionate about the need for all children to have access to books. Now a Gold Sponsor for KYGN UK, the partnership continues, Joseph will be taking another group of students back to KYGN in 2018 to carry out more work on the library, deliver more books and work with the KYGN students.
