Each year, SAGE donates to a huge variety of causes, both through large donations and through fundraisers throughout the year. SAGE has invested millions of dollars and committed millions more to organizations that reflect SAGE’s core values and complement SAGE’s dedication to impacting lives in inspiring and innovative ways.
In 2012, SAGE UK launched Global Giving, a scheme which saw staff from the London office nominate developmental and educational charities and organisations in the developing world to receive a donation that would fund a specific need or project. We are delighted that Global Giving has been repeated in 2013, with a total of over £16,000 being donated to 12 charities. Here, Louisa Morphy, Senior Publishing Editor explains how the £1,200 given to the Amani Children’s Home in Tanzania will be used.
“At the foot of Mt. Kilimanjaro, the Amani Children’s Home rescues street children, gives them a safe and loving home, education, medical care and counseling, and when possible, reunifies them with family. SAGE’s donation will provide for eight Amani children for an entire year, covering healthcare, education and food. £150 a year is enough to provide for each child and protect them from the perils of life on the street. Since 2001, Amani has helped more than 700 children to leave the streets behind. Amani’s adage is ‘Rescuing Children, Restoring Hope, Transforming Lives’, which couldn’t be more fitting.”
SAGE is delighted to be able to support such worthwhile and inspirational charities and global causes. To learn more about our past Global Giving initiatives, check out a few of the projects from last year:
