Who we are
Building from the roots up, our hopes, our dreams, our livelihoods, our destinies. Seeding Africa cares about feeding our future. Poverty and lack of economic growth in Africa have grown tremendously in the last decades. That is why we seek a world of hope, tolerance, and social justice, where poverty has been eradicated and people live in dignity and security.
Seeding Africa will be a global force and a partner of choice within a worldwide movement dedicated to ending poverty. We will be known for our unshakable commitment to the dignity of our African people. Change must come from within us, the will and right to live in a safe and secure world. Seeding Africa is a charitable organization founded by Africans on the continent and in the Diaspora.
The founders of this organization thought it wise to come together and make Africa self-reliant on food production. The main aim of this organization is to source and supply organic seeds to local farming communities on the continent to feed its people, thus Feeding our Future.
Seeding Africa Pillars
We at Seeding Africa Pillars think that the African continent and its people have enormous potential. We are committed to promoting innovation, enabling sustainable growth, and sparking good change throughout the area. We seek to sow the seeds of growth that will grow into powerful development pillars, forming a better future for all, through strategic initiatives and cooperative collaborations. Join us on this adventure as we foster innovation, empower communities, and create a prosperous Africa for future generations.
Sustainability of communities by cultivating a spirit of team building,
encourage community mobilization and instill a sense of self-reliance
within 162 selected communities through Agro business. Support
innovative avenues for income-generating activities outside of farming
to sustain community development projects.
Environmental solutions such as better energy & water management to
optimised production. Following practices and techniques to reduce
erosion, increase bio diversity and decrease carbon emissions
Economic viability Agriculture will play a crucial role in the economy
of African countries and provide the main source of food, income and
employment to our rural populations. Improvements in agriculture and
land use is very important to achieving food security, poverty
alleviation and overall sustainable development. That is why we at SA, seeing the current situation in Africa feel the urgency to do what we can to promote economic viability within African communities.
The right to adequate food is the right to dignity and life. According to
article 24 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the United
Nations High Commission, Everyone has the right to a standard of living
adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family,
including food, clothing, housing, security and medical care. By returning to the soil, you not only provide for your family and community but your economy grows and your environment changes in a positive way which restores dignity.
What we do
It is in this context that SEEDING AFRICA has planned to provide 162 community training to enhance food quality/quantity/diversity and specialization by improving their farming methods and providing Knowledge on marketing management training and access to the market by linking them with buyers and suppliers. Working along with the beneficiaries in developing their communities as well as activities that can generate income and build up their capacity. We will support efforts to cultivate alternate skills such as financial administration, consumer research, marketing, management and organizational skills, agriculture technologies, risk management, etc. So that these communities can produce a much-needed consumable, and make a profit for their own growth and sustainability.
How do we go about this?
- By conducting front-line field demonstrations, which consist of both method and result demonstration. The objective is to show how production can be increased per unit of area and per unit of time.
- By training and capacity building. Our program is designed to give our trainers the know-how to share with farmers the skills to succeed no matter what size parcel of land they are on or what sort of crops or non-crops they are growing.
- By research and data collection. Modernizing data, collection, storage, and utilization would yield much-needed insights. Supporting research on the connection between conservation practices and environmental outcomes ( including soil carbon sequestration) and agriculture risk and productivity is crucial in advancing climate-smart agriculture.
- By advocating ( ag vacate) and giving a voice to the smallholder farmers by promoting effective policies.
