Who We Are

SAF is a registered Canadian charity based in Surrey, British Columbia. We have been working in India since 2014, and we provide aid to children, families, and individuals in need of assistance.

Our primary focus is on providing education to underprivileged children of all faiths so that they can build a better life for themselves. Beyond that, we also work within impoverished communities to provide food, medical aid and clean water, repair homes, and install renewable energy sources.
