SAA | EVI believes that in unity lies strength.

One of Aesop’s famous fables tells the story of an old man who summons his sons around him to give them some fatherly advice. He orders them to bring in a bundle of sticks, and says to his eldest son: “Break it.”

The son strains, but with all his efforts is unable to break the bundle. The other sons also try, but none succeed. “Now, untie the bundle,” says the father, “and each of you take a stick,” and when they do so, he tells them: “Now, break,” and each stick is easily broken.

In unity lies strength and longevity, and healthy communities are diverse strands woven together to remain intact and strong. This is the philosophy that guides our work.
