Let's act together to transform our world
Our team believe that by tackling the root causes of injustice and poverty, locally and globally, that we can create a bright and sustainable future for all. Work with us, looking through the lens of the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goals to learn more about Climate Justice, Sustainable Agriculture, Gender Equality and Ethical Trade.
Our programme is funded by Irish Aid.
Self Help Africa is committed to safeguarding the wellbeing of children while they are participating in events run by or on behalf of Self Help Africa. Self Help Africa adheres to the requirements of the Children First Act 2015 (“CFA”) and the National Guidance for the Protection and Welfare of Children, 2017 (“Children First Guidance, 2017”) developed by the Department of Children and Youth Affairs and also requires those who run events on its behalf to do so.
