SARA – Vision - Mission Statements -  2023-2024

We will continue to promote our core values and bring amateur radio to the residents and visitors to Seychelles.
Core values that represent what it means to be a member of SARA;


Through social gatherings and communication over radio systems here in Seychelles and with the rest of the world you belong to a fraternity of similar minded individuals who seek to acquire additional knowledge and understanding of radio systems with possibly related IT together with other peoples perspectives and experience.


By being involved in projects* that you yourself want to do using objectives and ambitions that you have set yourself, you build your confidence and self esteem.


By excluding politics and religion from any activities, we avoid confrontation and seek out ways in which we can help each other and the rest of our community. We train so that we can assist with recovering from natural disasters.

Centre of Excellence:

By providing a center of technical excellence for RF systems, we provide a valuable reference point for those seeking assistance in our field of expertise.
