Alan Rickman was a founding trustee of S.A.F.E., and later became an active patron.  Alan’s passion for social justice and the power of the arts to transform lives was unrivalled; when he visited us here in Kenya in 2004 he inspired the young Kenyan actors with his enthusiasm and commitment to the causes that they were battling, and his clear devotion for the use of performance to solve their community’s problems.

“In 2004, I visited one of S.A.F.E.‘s tours. At the beginning of any given show, up to 2,000 people know little or nothing about AIDS except what mystery, rumour and prejudice tells them. An hour later, they go back to their villages knowing everything through stories they can identify with and thousands of lives will be saved. This work deserves and demands support.” – Alan Rickman, S.A.F.E.
