SaFuGe

SaFuGe is an organisation started in 2003 by Joseph Kaifala, an RCN student from Sierra Leone. Their goal is to make studying conditions better for their fellow students from the many countries from which our students come. They do this by fundraising – from activities such as running cafes and doing work in the local community – and, after a voting process, awarding grants to their peers to undertake projects during the summer break. Most recently projects have been undertaken in Nepal, Uganda, Argentina, El Salvador, Zimbabwe, South Sudan, Sierra Leone and Ecuador.

A student voice

Being woken early in the morning by a Swiss, brushing your teeth standing next to a Dane, hurrying to class in the morning rush hour with an Uzbek, sitting next to an Angolan in class, being taught Economics by a Guatemalan, going to a Ghanaian to clear confusions in Maths, going for a run with a Brazilian; all these are little things that make this place beautiful. This place is special.
