“What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want” Saint Augustine, 354-430

Self Help Africa was formed from a merger between UK charity Harvest Help and Irish charity Self Help Development International. We are committed to helping families in rural Africa grow enough to feed themselves all year around, and to improving opportunities for people to earn a living. We want to ensure rural communities have access to the basic rights of water, healthcare and education. We are not about handouts or giving aid, rather we want to ensure people have the skills they need to move out of poverty and to manage their own future.

‘The Hands of Hope’ follows the stories of people who have found hope again through Self Help Africa’s work. By supporting us this harvest you will help rural communities in Africa break free from poverty. We have a huge vision – and we want your church to play a real part in it
