What is Support from a Distance (SAD)?

SAD allows girls and boys from countries less fortunate than ours to go to school, take care of themselves and live a dignified life, staying in their own village and with their family.

It is much more than a simple financial aid…It is a bond of solidarity, understanding and mutual affection between different populations…It is a concrete sign of the union of the peoples of which today you clearly see the need!

Improving the lives of children and their communities

Building lifelong Learning Centers for entire villages

Building Schools and Resources for the community to prosper

SAD supports children from Senegal, Gambia, and India promoted by Energy for Human Rights ONLUS with the aim of improving the life of the whole community and the individual child. SAD develops community projects such as the creation of kindergartens, schools, vital resources, and lifelong learning centers for the entire village known as the Multipurpose Humanist Centers.

With the help of our sponsors, we’ve been able to provide free education for over 800 students, build 12 schools and community gardens, and improved the living conditions of thousands of people in need.
