I've had the privilege of knowing and helping SASEF from its formation. As a professional who has worked for almost 30 years with many charitable organizations, I can honestly say that SASEF is one of the best. I've seen only consistently excellent, high quality programs and initiatives produced and developed by SASEF. SASEF is an example of what a charitable organization should provide to improve life for all of us, directly and indirectly. SASEF's programs are truly a life changing blessing to the participants!

SASEF has been very supportive to the growth and development of Messengers of Peace-Liberia(MOP), a Non Profit, Voluntary Organization working with youth in promoting peace and development through Volunteerism since 2011. MOP-Liberia’s vision is to become one of the great Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) movement in Liberia and the sub-region which stands for key peace values and is not afraid or reluctant to stand up for peace and non-violence. MOP-Liberia is a conscientious objector to any form of violence anywhere in the world. During its embryonic phase, SASEF provided the impetus for the growth of Messengers of Peace-Liberia through various capacity building programs for Peace Messengers(volunteers) including the Executives and Board Members. SASEF also assisted greatly in hoisting MOP website and provided resource linkages to organizations whose mandates were in sic with that of Messengers of Peace-Liberia. Consequently,raised the profile of the organization to international standard. SASEF assisted in the promotion of MOP's three(3) online proposals on strengthening peace clubs in Liberian schools and communities, Mentorship and Coaching Program for Adolescent Girls in Peacebuilding and Advocacy for Peace Project. Moreover, I've been greatly touched and inspired in my professional journey by the work and programmes of SASEF as Executive Director of Messengers of Peace-Liberia(MOP).

My first time coming across Shirley Ann Sullivan Educational Foundation(SASEF) or knowing about this unique organization was through it's founding chair . SASEF has been working tirelessly with its support through Educational empowerment for youth in Liberia. One major example is a one day intensive traning on organizational skills called "Raising the Bar" organized by SASEF for a Non-Governmental and Non-political Organization called Messengers of Peace Liberia(MOP Liberia), a youth group dedicated to preaching message of peace and development in Liberia. As part of SASEF's mandate as it relates to Educational empowerment, this organization has been providing support to other youth organizations in Liberia aimed at achieving the Millenium Development Goals(MDGS) for Liberia, such support was also given during the celebration of the Global Youth Service Day(GYSD 2011) in Liberia where youths of Liberia were educated on the Millenium Development Goals(Goals 2, 6 & 7) which has to do with ACHIVING UNIVERSAL PRIMARY EDUCATION ,
COMBATING HIV/AIDS, MALARIA AND OTHER DISEASES
and lastly ENSURING ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY.

Rhonda Staudt embodies the spirit and mission of the organization she founded. The SASEF community is privileged to have someone with such a big and open heart combined with expertise in many areas essential to its success. She was very helpful to The Institute for Conscious Global Change by giving great consulting advice. SASEF will continue to have a positive impact on the global community in the field education for a long time to come. They will always have my support.

SASEF is one of the outstanding nonprofit organizations that aids the third world children in broaden their horizons and giving their willing hearts and mind a chance to grow. This nonprofit organization created fundraising ethics by setting up a library and giving the children the ability to freely education themselves. Children are our future and that is the concern of SASEF.

It was almost a year ago now when I was first inroduced to the Shirley Ann Sullivan Education Foundation. Snice that initial introduction I have been truly amazed at the amount of work the organisation has done for youth in Liberia and other parts of the world. SASEF is an organisation truly committed to the impowerment of youth, no lip-service here they are the real deal. The passion of Founding Chair Rhonda Sullivan is immeasurable and I feel highly honoured to have worked with her and SASEF. A dynamic organisation that strongly focuses on holistoic youth development, SASEF's recent leadership seminar held for the youth leaders of Messengers of Peace-Liberia was so well recieved that the young people have asked for a follow-up. The workshop was designed and facilitated by Mrs. Staudt supported by Mr Kimmie Weeks, Executive Director of Youth Action International (YAI) and Ms. Sarah-Jane Mungo, Executive Director of The Development Resource. SASEF has also formed critical alliances with key organisations that promote education and employable skills development for youth.

I have been working with The Shirley Ann SAullivan Educational Foundation for four or five years and I find the work they are doing is is a credit to all people working with this wonderful organization. The work they do in Africa and South America has changed the lives of children living without hope and promise. I only wish there were more groups like This who believe in sharing and giving to thioses who have had a rather difficult life and great burdens to carry.

The founders and other volunteers who work to help children through SASEF's projects and programs are some of the best volunteers I've known in my 25 years of legal practice working with the nonprofit sector. Because of their conscientious stewardship and generous donation of their talents and skill, SASEF's board and staff have always provided amazing results with a very small amount of money. These are people who make our world and the world's of children, a better place!

I had worked in the Nutrition Center of the Pediatric hospital in Luanda- Angola. There I realized how important it is to stop the cycle of malnutrition through health literacy projects.Toghter with SASEF we created a flop chart with simple messages and appealing pictures, posters and brochures.The project´s goal is to teach young mothers the value of mother´s milk and help them to understand how to provide a nutritious and healthy lifestyle for their children and families.Further more we wanted to help the nurses and doctors to understand the benefit and ease of cunducting these classes while waiting for the consultation. SASEF also teamed up with other organisations to coordinate efforts related to fighting HIV\AIDS addressing birth control and prenatal issues.

Education in invaluable. This organization cares about those children who otherwise may not have a chance to realize their dreams....they even help them realize that they CAN dream big and with education children can turn their dreams into reality.
