Self Help Africa (SHA) has worked in Zambia since 1987 and has an established reputation for implementing projects that support poor smallholder farmers (male and female) to acquire the knowledge and skills to make immediate and long-term improvements to their food, income and nutrition security and livelihoods through intensified and diversified agricultural production.
