SASEF is an amazing foundation that not only has children's best interests and education at heart but others as well. A child's safety is probably one of the most important needs in the world today. The "V Sign" is so significant to children's safety world wide and will ultimately save hundreds if not thousands of kids lives. I applaud the determination and tenacity which SASEF has displayed in order to achieve world wide recognition to assist others with education, safety and a better quality of life. I met the director of SASEF, Rhonda Staudt, in Liberia, West Africa where she was actively involved with helping many people not only there but throughout the world. She is truly a gift from God for so many people.

It is my great privilege to know Rhonda Staudt and to have seen, first hand, the heartwarming results of SASEF. The work they do is a lifeline to the children they help, help that wouldn't have found them any other way, due to their socioeconomic and geographic challenges. The drive and determination of Ms. Staudt and the members of SASEF, to see the progress they have made and the goals they have achieved, is truly inspiring!
