Active since 2013, Seeds NGO was created in Switzerland with the aim of supporting development projects in developing countries. The targeted projects are individual initiatives, linked to micro-finance, social enterprise and education. All projects are well-known by the Seeds’ team and are monitored on a regular basis. Seeds supports these projects by facilitating access to financial resource and technical support. Also, Seeds’ aims at raising the awareness of the wider public on the potential that lies within their capacity to contribute directly in the improvement of the quality of life of people living in difficult situations.
Seeds’ activities have been made possible thanks to the financial support of hundreds of private donors as well as of with major donations from institutional actors.
EFFICIENCY – THE PROJECTS
We really strive to dedicate most of the received funds to go directly to our beneficiaries. Seeds keeps its administrative costs to the very minimum (10%), only to ensure a professional presence on the field, while all the members within our European headquarters keep working on a voluntary basis.
Seeds enables mutual understanding between beneficiaries and donors. The website is the main relay point of information. The organization of field trips will allow any person interested in visiting the undergoing projects to be able to do so.
Seeds is inspired by the quote from Antoine de St. Exupéry which states that: "Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away".
TRUST – TRANSPARENCY 100%
Seeds accounts are published on its website and will are audited once a year. The activity reports of the projects are used to regularly update the website.
Seeds promotes the autonomy of the projects supported through different areas: micro-finance and small-size social enterprise. Seeds' ultimate objective is the sustainability of the supported projects.
