Raised to date:
Members of Cal-Nev-Ha Region 16 (Divisions 44, 27, and 7) are building a new classroom for a school in Kenya, bringing in electricity, and refurbishing the school’s Science Lab. The result will be a model school for the Central Highlands area.

We are bigger when we help others, and we’re stronger when we work together. Beyond the classroom itself, that is the big win. Join us!

In coordination with building a new kitchen for the Kiahuko Primary School, TGUP will fund the installation of two cooking vats, called jikos. This will allow the school to give the 450+ students and staff a mid-day meal that consists of more than just porridge. Each jiko will be connected to a chimney to expel the smoke and provide for a safe environment.

Gift a beehive for a family member, friend or loved one. TGUP is placing beehives with local villagers, farmers and schools in Kenya. The bees improve crop production by as much as 500%! For $90, we will install a beehive with a 3"x6” bronze plaque in the name of the person or family you choose. 100% of the cost will go to the beehive and is tax deductible. TGUP will email you a personalized letter and a photo of the hive once it is installed. Our goal is to install 100 beehives.

Save a Girl kits are made at TGUP Affiliate Sewing Centers and Associate Sewing Centers in developing world countries. Both types of Centers are independently owned and operated but use TGUP technology, which is provided at no cost. They employ local seamstresses in well-paying, meaningful work helping girls in their own community. Affiliate Sewing Centers benefit from TGUP’s intellectual property and support in logistics. No commitment to fund kits is expected. Click here for more information.
