History of Trust A girl Africa (TAGA)
TAGA is a Non Governmental Organization (NGO) that was started in 2016 as an idea from a young Ugandan Boy from Okol Village Northern Uganda named Olanya Boniface who lost all his parents to cancer and he was left with so many children to take care of with support from his grandmother. After being given a future through education sponsorship by his American friend, he had to look through his life, family, village and the Nation of Africa at large.
The initial idea started when he discovered that his late father left so many children others without his knowledge and most of which were girls. On December 2018 he decided to gather all the children for his late father and they had a get together where many children met for the first time in real life.
Out of all the newly discovered children, one Girl ‘’Juliet ‘’ a 12 year primary school out of the millions of African girls made him come up with the idea of supporting girl child through starting an NGO that would make girl child very important in the community, nation, Africa and the world at large.
