Self Help Africa has been presented with a prestigious award for Good Practice, from the President of Ethiopia.

The organisation received the recognition from President Dr. Mulatu Teshome (pictured far right) at an annual awards ceremony in Addis Ababa, organized by the Consortum of Christian Relief & Development Associations (CCRDA).

Self Help Africa received the citation for its ‘Sustainable Sustainable Transformation of Agricultural Resources’ (STAR) project, which has been assisting farm production and market access for 2,800 families in the North-Shewa region of Oromia Province for the past four years.

Receiving the award from President Teshome on behalf of Self Help Africa, Country Director Dr. Wubshet Berhanu said that the CCRDA’s Good Practice Awards were a valuable peer recognition of the organisation’s work in North-Shewa.

CCRDA has a membership of over 400 Ethiopian registered national and international NGOs and Community-based organisations, and seeks to recognize Good Practice within programme implementation in the country.
