SPECIAL THANKS TO OUR GREEN STAR DONORS

#
Gecko kids at Angkor Wat

While the Green Gecko Project owes much gratitude to many people for their ideas, encouragement, donations and support - there are a few major players that have been fundamental to our existence.

This page is dedicated to our Green Star Donors - Green Gecko's longest supporters and most substantial financial investors. These are the people, companies and organisations who give us the confidence to strive further and aim higher, knowing year after year, they have our backs.

In our Gecko family, the words 'Green Star' are synonymous with excellence. Every Thursday for many years now, the kids chant 'Green Star, Green Star' at our lunch time assembly, excited to find out who got the Green Star Award, a weekly award for most enthusiastic motivation and participation in activities.

It's the highest award you can get at Gecko and a most appropriate title for the following supporters!

Back in the day when we had no school, no fence, no gate, no formal education...Arisaig Partners appeared like a gift from the heavens. Making successful careers out of investments, we feel blessed that they chose to invest in us. Their focus is in holistic education and every year they visit us in person, to see the fruits of their investment first hand.

JARVIS FORD

Jarvis Ford, which is part of the Jarvis Group of Companies, is one of Australia's leading automotive dealerships. The owner, Richard Collins, has always worked on the philosophy that it's one thing to grow and expand a business, but it's also important to support the local community and charities.

"I have always been a firm believer that it is the responsibility of business to get behind charities like the amazing team at Green Gecko, the difference they have made and are making to the lives of under privileged children is amazing and inspirational. I receive great personal satisfaction knowing that you are helping to give these children true quality of life and a future to look forward to, this would not be possible without the loving and caring team at Green Gecko who they can trust and rely upon."

Ursula Zindel-Hilti Foundation
URSULA ZINDEL-HILTI FOUNDATION

The Foundation's objective is to help children, youths and young women whose daily lives are characterized by poverty, fear, abuse and the absence of fundamental human rights. We want to provide them with safe accommodation, medical assistance, food and education, something we try to achieve - whenever possible - within their family context, which will ultimately benefit the living conditions of the affected families as well. In those cases where it is not possible for the children, youths and young women to live with their families, we try to create a family-like environment, a new home that gives them security, loving care and adequate support. It is our declared intention to help young people find a way out of the bitterness of poverty. We want to improve their development potential and open up new opportunities for their future. For this very reason, we focus our efforts on social entrepreneurs and organizations that devote themselves to combating the causes of abuse in the field and commit themselves to helping these young human beings to live a life in dignity. - Ursula Zindel-Hilti
