Self Help Africa

Helping People to Help Themselves

Self Help Africa is a charity helping families in rural Africa out of poverty. We help people grow enough food to feed their families, help them find ways of earning a living, and help communities manage their own development.

The Give to Grow Project in Teso, north east Uganda, is where many households survive through subsistence farming. More than 50% of the population are living on less than 15p a day. Self Help Africa is supporting 1,000 small holder farmers to grow more and earn more from their land with improved quality seeds and cuttings and small livestock, training in farming technologies and basic business skills so that they can become more independent and resilient, so working their way out of poverty.
