About us

For nearly 30 years, SOS Sahel UK has been dedicated to relieving the poverty of marginalised groups who live in the drylands of the Sahel, the belt of semi-arid land south of the Sahara. We support our African partner organisations to work with pastoralists, agro-pastoralists and small-holder farmers to help them protect their local environment and at the same time improve their livelihoods. We support communities to effectively manage their local forests, water points, rangelands and farmlands, for a sustainable and peaceful future.

Our approach

SOS Sahel UK is committed to African-led development, with all projects designed by our national NGO partners based in-country. We respond to the needs and requests of our partners, offering support, advice and capacity-building when needed, be it financial, programmatic or organisational. All projects involve SOS Sahel staff who are local to the area; projects are designed with and for the communities that they target. From the very start of a project, local people, community groups and policy makers are involved in activities to ensure long-lasting impacts beyond the life of the project.
