Our mission is to provide education to children and youth throughout the world. Through continued research of educational programs, we identify and implement solutions impacting the development of children and youth. We collaborate with youth serving organizations that support our vision in developing self-sustaining people improving the quality of life for future generations.
Shirley Ann Sullivan Educational Foundation (SASEF )created The V Sign to equip children and youth with a real self protection tool in the event they are being trafficked or stolen. The V Sign can be used as an SOS alert for a child or youth who is in danger. The V Sign equips children and youth with a real life child friendly self-protection tool allowing for the silent self-identification of being stolen, bullied, abused or trafficked. A child can make The V Sign walking down the street, in a hotel lobby, airport, from a car, bus or train window, restaurant, grocery store or standing on the street corner. Once witnessed one should call the police and notify sighting The V Sign.
