Self Help Africa is an international development agency that works at grassroots level tackling poverty and improving lives in rural Africa.
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. We work in Burkina Faso,Eritrea, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Togo, Uganda and Zambia.Self Help Africa uses a wide variety of innovative technologies to assist the people we work with to achieve sustainability in their lives.
These approaches are cost effective and practical ways of tackling the very real challenges faced by Africa's rural poor.
