Safe Africa



Safe Africa global partnersSub-Saharan Africa Family Enrichment (SAFE) is a ministry in Malawi, Africa that nurtures the needs of people from babies to grandparents.  Serving Malawi for over twenty years, Dick and Charlotte Day developed this ministry and have continued to seek ways to shine Jesus’ light to the impoverished people there. Their ministries include SAFE-Africa, the parent organization; Gogo Grandmothers, grandparent sponsorship that supports families and developing preschools; and Sukulu, the teacher sponsorship program. All of these programs work together to provide Malawians consistent support throughout their lives. 

The vision of SAFE is that the AIDS epidemic in Africa may be curbed through redeemed hearts, renewed minds, and changed behavior, and that individuals, communities, cultures, and government policies may be transformed by God’s power and principles.

We believe that every person has been created in the image of God (Genesis 1:27) and may, through faith in Jesus Christ as personal Savior (John 3:16), have a meaningful personal relationship with God. As individuals are redeemed and their minds are transformed, their godly character and biblical worldview will transform their communities and culture (Romans 12:2).

It is the calling of SAFE to assist in redeeming the individual, the family, and the culture according to God’s revelation, which has been made known through the Holy Bible and through the person of Jesus Christ. We are convinced that we must address all aspects of human existence-body, mind, soul and spirit- because this is consistent with God’s creative and redemptive plan for mankind.

Our focus is the current generation of young people and the generations that follow. SAFE is working in partnership with national leadership, Ministries of Education and Women and Child Development, and faith-based organizations throughout Africa. Though these partnerships, SAFE is touching thousands of lives as it influences government policy and programs. SAFE is promoting creative and sustainable solutions to eliminate the spread of HIV/AIDS and to help those whose lives have been devastated by the epidemic.

SAFE seeks by God’s grace and the power of the Holy Spirit, to direct individuals to Christ for a better quality of life on earth and for eternal life.
