By making your donation through the Big Give Christmas Challenge, you could double your money for Self Help Africa.

If you’d like to make your pounds go further and help more African families change their lives, you can make a Big Give donation on 5th, 6th or 7th December 2013.

Please make your donation on our Big Give donation page.  Each day, a limited pot of match funding is available so it’s best to donate at 10am on either of these dates.

We are aiming to raise £40,000 through this year’s Big Give Christmas Challenge. Support received will be invested in developing sustainable seed systems so that local farming families can be assured access to good quality planting seed.

If you have any questions, please email Abi or call her on 01743 277170.

Good quality seed can make or break harvests in rural Africa. Self Help Africa provides farmers with the skills to produce their own seed. Quality seed production will provide food and an income for seed growers and increased harvests for farmers sowing the seed.

Better seed leads to bigger harvests and less people hungry. We train and support resource-poor, smallholder farmers to multiply and produce certified seed of improved local varieties, support them to establish local seed enterprises, and trade seed surpluses.
