Students for Education, Empowerment and Development (SEED) is a Canadian-registered charity providing access to education in Kenya. Our mission is to mobilize individuals towards the realization of their personal potential. We do this by investing in education, as we believe that the knowledge, social development, and cognitive tools that are developed through learning create a foundation which allows people to positively affect their own conditions and the conditions of those around them.

We are committed to having the greatest impact possible in the communities where we work. Since 2005, over $350,000 has been raised to support children’s education and empowerment. Of this, only around 5% was spent on operating costs.
