What saha means to me:

“saha is a great place to work simply because you get a true sense of belonging combined with the feeling of a family atmosphere. There is a “can do” attitude throughout the organisation, with many colleagues going the extra mile. This all goes towards achieving saha’s mission of transforming lives”.
