Our Shops

grab a bargain and support our work


We’re always looking for volunteers to help
out across our retail network. Whether it’s in

Coleraine or Cork, Belfast or Bandon, we’d

love to hear from you if you have even a few

hours to spare, each week.

Get in touch with your local shop through phone or email below and join a fantastic national network of hundreds of enthusiastic volunteers who selflessly give their time for a great cause, in our shops across Ireland, every week.

Donate to the shops

An unwanted top, vintage jacket or
recently read book can achieve so much
in its ‘second life’, when it is donated to a
Self Help Africa charity shop.

Across our shops network we raise hundreds of thousands of euro/pounds each year to support our development projects in Africa – and we couldn’t do it without your help and generous support.


“One of the main benefits of volunteering with Self Help Africa has been gaining that sense of belonging to a place, by learning about its people and places and community.

It is a feeling I am lacking since I moved here from my own country, and volunteering helped me discover Cork, its wonderful people and it made everything more homely.”

We’re so grateful for our brilliant volunteers like Resul, who volunteers in our Cork city shop.

Resul began volunteering in February of this year after applying online.

“For me, volunteering means a bit of everything: I don’t only offer a bit of my time for a noble cause, but I am also improving my social skills, getting to know people, learning new skills and I can also see it as a bit of therapy.

I can be more meditative while tagging or sorting items, or more extroverted while talking with colleagues.

I would encourage everyone to start volunteering because there are so many benefits, both for oneself and for the community.”

We’re delighted to have you on the Self Help Africa team, Resul! We’re always looking for more amazing volunteers for our shops too – get in touch for more information if you’re interested.
