Our aims are:
1) To relieve poverty in any part of the world by promoting appropriate development.
2) To advance the education of the students of Cranfield University by the provision of overseas work experience.
SAFAD is a British charity run by students of Cranfield University. Since 1969 SAFAD has sent 340 graduate and post-graduate volunteers out to 37 different countries in the developing world. The volunteers work with local organisations on existing and new projects. They provide technical assistance and expertise and receive field experience. It is an opportunity for very specific and practical education to be put to work directly to help those in most need. Every SAFAD volunteer has been a very recent Cranfield graduate or post-graduate student coming from across the University, in areas such as water, soil and environmental sciences, engineering, management and health.
