The Team


SARF was established in February 2012 by the co-Directors Amina Lone and Daniel Silver with the aim of creating a think-tank that approaches things differently, to be able to challenge poverty and work with communities. To do this, we also collaborate with a wide range of different partners and associates on projects that help to achieve our aim of tackling poverty
