Stories of growth, Inspiration
For impoverished families and communities in India, the chance to participate in one of SAFP’s programs is a life changing experience. Our local staff members and volunteers help families and communities find solutions to their problems and provide them with the support to develop their abilities and confidence. Our stories show how powerful these changes can be.

By joining SAFP’s Family Development Program, Sheela Kurian was able to graduate from driving school, purchase her own vehicle and begin a taxi business. She was able to employ her husband and both are now earning an income for their family.
