This page is currently being updated ahead of the launch of SAA’s new Strategic Plan (2021-2025).


Sub Saharan Africa Free from Hunger and poverty Sustainably producing nutritious food in an eco-friendly, market oriented and socially viable system


  • Working in partnership with public and private stakeholders, in particular extension advisory services, to influence the transformation of African agriculture
  • Empowering farmers and specifically small holders to sustainably increase productivity in response to market demand

Theory of Change

  1. SAA believes that strengthening capacity of extension service delivery along the value chain could help Smallholder Farmers (SHFs) acquire knowledge for increased and sustained production and productivity towards improving their lives and livelihoods.
  2. Women, youth and people with special needs are mostly marginalized but have lots of potential which could be harnessed to build their confidence and self-reliance through the use of targeted agricultural interventions.
  3. Creation and/or strengthening viable Farmer-Based Organizations (FBOs) is crucial to enhance SHFs’ and youths’ collective action in market oriented agricultural value chains to generate income and improve food security.
