Self Help Africa

Self Help Africa is an international development agency that works at grassroots level tackling poverty and improving lives in rural Africa. Operating in ten countries, Self Help Africa's primary focus is assisting families and communities to grow enough food to feed themselves and to earn a sustainable living. Our all-African staff and local partners will this year help hundreds of thousands of people to work their way out of poverty. We will do this by bringing simple and effective innovations to farming, managing natural resources and helping people access basic services like clean water, healthcare and education. Self Help Africa has almost twenty-five years experience in bringing lasting solutions to poverty for Africa’s rural poor. The organisation was created following the integration of Harvest Help, the UK-based agency that has been supporting development programmes in rural Africa since 1985 and Irish agency Self Help Development International, established in 1984 in response to the devastating Ethiopian Famine. Self Help Africa operates in Benin, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania, Togo, Uganda and Zambia.
