Harold and Janet Pliszka travelled to Africa in 2005. There they met Goal Joseph Akongo who said “No more handouts, what we need is a seed so we can make it grow.” The seed is education and what started out as a backyard BBQ to raise funds for 1 -2 kids has grown into HYTES which is currently helping ~115 students this year.
HYTES has been operating since 2006. From inception, $748,000 has been raised including $162,000 in government grants through the Community Initiatives Program. HYTES has paid over $597,000 directly in scholarships seeing students through their secondary education.
