This september SAGAL is celebrating 10 years anniversary. It is already a decade since the founding of SAGAL Help to Self Help Organisation.
We are so proud of what we have achieved during these years. It would not have been possible without our partner FOKUS – Forum for Women and Development, financial support from The Directorate of Integration and Diversity (IMDi), great support from members of SAGAL and other friends that have supported our organisation with donations and gift.
