My Personal Message

Hi All,

In December I will be climbing the roof of Africa - Mount Kilimanjaro. To make me even more determined to reach the summit of the tallest freestanding mountain in the world I want to help raise some funds for a great cause. All funds raised go directly to Self Help Africa and I am funding the entire trip on my own expense.

As someone who teaches I am a firm believer that knowledge equals progress and that only by sharing knowledge with one another can we grow and prosper. There is an old saying, "Give a man a fish, and you’ll feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you’ve fed him for a lifetime.". Self Help Africa provides rural communities with the knowledge and assistance to help them advance their farms and their livelihoods - for the long term.

Self Help Africa is an Irish headquartered international development agency implementing long term rural development projects in nine countries in Africa - Burkina Faso, Ghana, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Togo, Uganda, and Zambia. For 2009, 92% of money raised was spent on charitable activities (http://www.selfhelpafrica.org/selfhelp/Main/finance.htm) with the remaining 8% spent on fundraising (7%) and governance (1%).

You can donate to Self Help Africa using the "sponsor me now" button below via credit or debit card. You can be assured that your transaction on the mycharity.ie website is very secure. You will automatically receive an e-mail from me thanking you for your support, and acknowledging the amount of your donation. Any donation no matter how small is hugely appreciated. The full amount of your donation goes to Self Help Africa.

Self Help Africa
Self Help Africa is an international development agency that seeks to end hunger and poverty in Africa.
 
Our efforts are focussed on farming and food production.  Why? - because 80% of Africans rely directly on small-scale farming for their survival, and because most land has the potential to grow much much more.
 
We help rural households to grow more food and earn more from their work.  We help families to diversify farming activities, and to access markets for their produce.   We help African women - who do the bulk of the work on most small farms.
 
For 30 years Self Help Africa has been working to with rural communities in Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Benin, Malawi, Togo, Uganda and Zambia.
 
Self Help Africa provides training and technical support, and assists rural poor communities in a wide variety of ways to produce more food, earn more from their land, and create opportunities to improve their lives and circumstances.
