Bridging the Gaps

About Us

SAIMS was founded following a three-year success story of promoting, marketing and selling. Southern African products in central Europe in cooperation with the South African Department of Trade and Industry. The main focus was to assist South Africa business communities that were left behind during the apartheid regime to access EU markets.

Food and population

The gravity and urgency of the tightening food situation is such that we are not looking at a crisis in 2030 or 2050. We are looking at an abrupt disruption in the world food supply that could be just one poor harvest away! Food crises could coincide on several continents at once.


Current and future effect on global population
Poverty vulnerability and economic insecurities are some of the direct risks to health, especially in developing countries. Warming oceans and a changing climate are resulting in an increase in infectious diseases.

Water Resources

Falling water tables
China, India, and the United States collectively produce half of the world’s grain. They are all under the threat of falling water tables. The question is not whether water shortages will affect their future harvests, but rather when will it do so.

Climate change

Climate is rapidly changing
Farmers around the globe are facing glass ceiling yields. We are facing extreme weather (drought and floods) patterns, the nutritional content of food for human consumption is decreasing. Our environment, ecosystems, and biodiversity is in great danger, and so are medicinal plants.

Solar Energy

Electrification of rural communities has reached centre-stage for contributing to poverty alleviation, stimulating economic activities in rural areas, fuelling industrial production and transportation as well as expanding rural development, protecting good health whilst promoting sustainability and environmental quality.

Are high prices and unemployment the only contributors to blame for food waste and food security in Africa?
Inefficient processing and drying, poor storage and insufficient infrastructure are instrumental factors in food waste in Africa. In Sub-Saharan Africa, post-harvest food losses are estimated to be worth US $ 4 billion per year – or enough to feed at least 48 million people.
The fundamental cause for food waste is lack of buying power for most Africans. Unemployment and lack of economic activities are some of the real contributors to food waste.
How is corruption hurting innovation and economic development in Africa?
Corruption is reducing opportunities for smaller companies and start-ups to effectively engage in innovation. Governments institutions should support good and reliable business environments to foster innovation, establish objective criteria to award patents, certifications, and accreditation. What the region needs the most for sustainable development is governments to mobilize its institutions, companies, and citizens to work together to ensure the development that is premised on real transparency, accountability, and participation.
What are the Major Health Issues in Africa?
Access to available and affordable medicine is one of the chief hurdles to healthcare in Africa. In 2015 alone, approximately 1.6 million Africans died of malaria, tuberculosis and HIV- related illnesses, respiratory infections and Ebola. The chief problem, however, is an inefficient and bureaucratic public sector supply system, which is often plagued by poor procurement practices that make drugs very costly or unavailable. Added to these are the poor transportation system, a lack of storage facilities for pharmaceutical products and a weak manufacturing capacity.
What are the clean energy challenges in Africa?
Clean energy poverty is Sub-Sahara Africa is a reality. A revolution is urgently needed to address and win the fight against energy poverty. An aggressive approach is required to promote robust economic and social development. Clean energy can unlock sustainable economic growth, improve human health and well-being and enable women and children to lead more productive lives
What are the food security issues in Africa?
Climate change and drought, low/no income, conflict, slow economic growth, poor infrastructure, lack of investment, weak commodity prices and population growth are key challenges increasingly imposing approximately 27.4% of the African population to severe food insecurity. This is almost four times as high as any other region in the world. Alarmingly, food insecurity is on the rise in sub-Saharan Africa. From 2016 – 2018, food insecurity increased by about 3%.



What we are doing to the forests of the world is but a mirror reflection of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another.
