The Guyana UK Social Development Association (GUSDA) is a charitable voluntary organisation founded in 1995, under the name Guyana Charity Ball, by a group of Guyanese promoters and Djs who wanted to give something back to the community.
In 2004 the organisation was constituted and until April 2017 operated under the name Guyana UK Sports Development Association (GUSDA). It’s prime purpose has been to assist in the development of sports in Guyana and of Guyanese in the UK. In April 2017, the Association decided to change its name to Guyana UK Social Development Association to broaden the scope of its activities and encompass a range of social development issues while retaining its acronym GUSDA.
In addition to sport, GUSDA will seek to lend its support in the areas of education, culture, health including mental health and general well-being. It will focus primarily on the young and the elderly.
