About Self Help Africa
Self Help Africa Self Help Africa Mission: To empower rural Africa to achieve economic independence ? and on a continent where up to 75% of people rely on small-scale agriculture for their survival, we believe that it is only by tackling the challenges faced by rural farming communities that real and sustained economic progress can be made across sub-Saharan Africa. Self Help Africa seeks to strengthen agricultural systems, improve access to services and inputs, and provide rural African communities with the opportunities to market and sell their produce. Self Help Africa works with local staff and partners in nine countries, supporting communities to grow more food, diversify their farm production, develop new off-farm enterprise, and sell their surpluses. We support rural micro-finance programs, assist producers to organize into farmers associations and co-operatives, enable farm families to access markets and add value to their produce. With climate change posing further challenges, we promote low cost sustainable solutions to the management of land and water resources.
