Self Help Africa empowers farmers

Self Help Africa believes agricultural expos are pivotal marketplaces where farmers can procure inputs and modern equipment to enhance their yield.

Ruben Kainga, the project manager of Self Help Africa’s SPEAR initiative, was speaking in Dedza during an agriculture exhibition organised in collaboration with a firm called Kadale.

He said through expos, farmers have gained access to high-quality inputs and equipment, thus elevating their farming methods.

“Under the SPEAR project, in partnership with Kadale Consultant and Dedza District Council’s agriculture office, Self Help Africa has orchestrated agricultural expos in various trading centres like Lobi, Chimbiya, Bembeke, and Dedza boma. These platforms provide farmers with invaluable opportunities to procure essential farm inputs and equipment,” Kainga said.

Matrida Mtambo, the Chief Agriculture Officer of Dedza district Council, lauded the organization for its collaborative effort in initiatives aimed at enhancing food security.

“Given the unreliability of this year’s rains, we’re urging farmers to embrace winter farming and irrigation practices across all suitable areas to bolster food security,” she said.
