How did it start ?

Rubina Nafees Fatima

Numerous problems related to women from the marginalized sections of Hyderabad were unaddressed and hidden. I seriously felt that this section of the society needs to be empowered so that they could acknowledge their worth and potential.


Thus SAFA stepped into the picture in June, 2006 to reach the untouched slums of Hyderabad with education, skill trainings, placements, livelihood through the production of multiple products and capacity building for their socio-economic betterment.

We are associated with both national and international organizations that promote an equal and just society via diverse programs, projects and activities.


SAFA is upgrading the skills of women and youth in trades like tailoring, embroidery, cooking, beauty and wellness, General Duty Assistant Nurse, and Information Technology enabled Services (ITES), Advanced ITES, Retail Management, MEDP, etc.

SAFA means Purity of mind and Clarity
