GTAF Mission Statement
We want to go back, go back to a time that everyone knew his/her neighbor, back to a time that our streets and parks were safe for our children to play in, back to when popping in to our neighbor to borrow a cup of sugar was the order of the day and back to a time, when people worked together to achieve the things they wanted to see happen. We believe this can be done.
We are not a rate payer’s association in the general term, our aims and objectives are to build-up the existing bodies that operate in our community, assisting the underprivileged, the child who does not fit into mainstream schooling, to organizations that go the extra mile to help those who need a hand up.
We would like to see ourselves filling the gap between the councilors and the community, making communication between them possible and in so doing, creating an environment that works for all who live in this wonderful neighborhood. Our Management Committee are individuals who are committed to making the difference in their respective portfolios, from young people, who are the future of this community to the elderly, who have served us well in the past. They ALL matter to us.
Our dream is to create an organization that leads by example, who listens to the concerns of all who reside in our area, to assist the city when it comes to implementing their regulations but at all times, putting our community and all who live in it, first.
It is the mission of this Community-based organization to BE the difference we want to SEE.
