Village-based Programs

SSAAP is a rural, village-based project; we do not work in African towns or cities. The rural areas of Africa are deeply neglected, while the towns and cities are targeted for much of the sustainable benefits provided by the NGOs  (Non-Governmental Organizations). Projects that the Embassies in Lusaka, Freetown and Addis Abba conduct for the betterment of Zambia, Sierra Leone and Ethiopia help the towns and cities to thrive.

The main selling point of this project is that the people, who have entrusted SSAAP, have granted us land. Rather than performing community entry tasks of learning about the culture and inquiring of the Africans what they need to improve their lives, the donor agencies (NGOs) have decided for the people what the agencies see as necessary to change in the village.

Barging into a community and deciding for the people what the NGO deems necessary without the consent of the people is not sustainable development, and is not ethical, nor is it respectful.

SSAAP operates with pure intention: We put a prosperous project into the hands of the people it serves. SSAAP also applauds village leadership and committee development for project development. Moreover, SSAAP provides empowerment to both men and women. Finally, SSAAP encourages connecting the villagers with people from other cultures.

Why locate in Sierra Leone? Due to the trauma of both the civil war and the Ebola Outbreak, Sierra Leone has been left with little to no humanitarian aid. SSAAP loyally remains one of the only humanitarian aid organizations remaining in Sierra Leone.

As we venture into Ethiopia humanitarian work, we learn that remote areas are painfully neglected by service organizations, which primarily conglomerate in Addis Abba, the capitol of Ethiopia. Little to no outreach exists in most areas of Ethiopia. There is eager anticipation from rural Ethiopians in the four quadrants of the country for clean drinking water, school sponsorships, animal rearing, and women’s projects.
