What started off as one young person’s desire to give back to her community by uniting local and international development partners around a common cause has evolved into SAFWE; an initiative that brings together young leaders passionate about women’s empowerment and education, and local and international partners in order to identify quality of life challenges and  create sustainable strategies that support community development.

If we want to see long-term solutions to poverty we must stop offering “fixes” from the outside and instead employ the resources of the local community to develop local leadership, local capacity and local structures that can achieve real change.
