When I first visited Ethiopia with Self Help it was a totally new experience for me. I have visited several times since, and have never ceased to be impressed with the work, and the very real impact that it is having on the lives of the poorest people. I would go back there on Monday.

Self Help Africa is the chosen charity of the Irish Farmers Association. It does fantastic work amongst some of the poorest communities in the world; by helping rural people to grow enough food and earn a living, Self Help is transforming lives, and helping Africans to farmer their way out of famine and poverty.

I am proud and honoured to have been associated with Self Help Africa and support everything that they work to achieve. I will continue to assist them in their work in any way that I can.

Areas that had formerly been in receipt of food aid were producing and selling surpluses. It was remarkable, and uplifting to see.

Self Help works with some of the poorest and most vulnerable communities, and gives them real hope for the future.

Visiting Malawi with Self Help gave me a real insight and understanding of the organisation's work, and showed me how the simplest of innovations can have an enormous impact on the lives of Africa's rural poor.
