The “Social Awareness For Education” (SAFE) Organization was found on December 31st, 2007 with the purpose of creating and spreading social awareness, ending blind beliefs and conservatism which are prominent in the society with the tool of education; and taking the youth towards the pinnacle of education, health and progress; thereby bringing about development on the social, economic and educational front.
According to the director of the Organization, “Ms. Raj kumari Gupta” today’s youth has the capability to make any impossible task possible; but the youth has been misled by the conservatism and blind faiths or they have wandered away from their aim due to corruption , harassment and thus they are ending up being involved in antisocial activities, alcoholism and crimes It is the need of the hour that the youth should get the guidance at the right time for education, health and employment; so that their educational, mental and economic development takes place. If the youth from the society are given the right opportunities at right time; the country shall also develop.
