- About Sasakawa Africa Association
SAA and its SG2000 country programs work in close collaboration with national agricultural extension services across sub-Saharan Africa, improving their operational activities and strengthening the abilities of their front-line staff. SAA’s sister organization – the Sasakawa Africa Fund for Extension Education (SAFE) – specializes in building the talents and skills of national extension service staff, and manages the SAA Theme 4, Human Resource Development. Thousands of government extension staff in target countries have been assigned by their ministries to participate in and learn from SG 2000 program activities. In addition, governments have contributed significant financial support for field-level operations.
Since 1986, SAA (and SAFE) programs have changed the lives of millions of smallholder farmers. The SAA vision, mission and strategic goals have remained constant over the years, though its organization, operational practices and activities have regularly adapted to changing realities on the ground. The commitment and support of the Nippon Foundation – the main donor to SAA and SAFE – has also remained steady, an unusual and very important fact in the history of agricultural development.
