SAEP Success Stories: Bringing our work to life

Our work is about real people and seeing how best we can work with them to make a lasting difference. These are the stories from some of our beneficiaries. In all cases, those featured have given consent and, where appropriate, we have changed their names too. We hope that these stories will help to illuminate the challenging circumstances facing those we work with and highlight the difference we are making with your help.
