About Us

Self Help Africa works with rural communities to help them improve their farms and their livelihoods.

Working with local staff and partners in nine countries, we support communities to grow more food, diversify their farm production, develop new off-farm enterprise, and sell their surpluses.

Wherever we work there is one factor that unites farmers across Africa – Poverty. Most of the 80 million smallholder farmers in Africa live on less than $2 a day. Unable to invest in their farms, they are condemned to a cycle of poor harvest and low incomes.

With over 25 years experience we can provide access to quality seed, livestock, saving & credit associations. Our projects use a ‘pass on’ basis, so that each farmer supplied with seed, livestock or credit pays back the loan with interest to allow more farmers to receive support at no extra cost.

This provides a sustainable way of allowing people in rural Africa work their way out of hunger & poverty. Our vision is a rural Africa free from hunger and poverty. With your help we can make this vision a reality.
