Students 'and Academics' International Assistance Fund (SAIH) is a politically independent organization. Ever since SAIH was founded in 1961, Norwegian students supported SAIH work through giving a coin of 10 NOK each to the SAIH. In addition to long-term development work, the SAIH works to get political influence in Norway and internationally, to improve the framework conditions for education and development globally.
