Organisation:
Seeds

Duty Station:  Uganda

Active since
2013, Seeds NGO was created in Switzerland with the aim of supporting
development projects in developing countries, and more specifically in the
Eastern Region of Uganda since 2014. The targeted projects are initiatives
linked to micro-finance and social enterprise. The projects can be grouped into
3 categories. The first and main activity of Seeds is the creation of Village
Savings Loans Associations (VSLA). Secondly, Seeds is also supporting the
creation of new and the improvement of already existing financial cooperatives.
Finally, Seeds is also supporting small Income-Generating Activities (IGA) in
the region.

Seeds’s
methodology is centered around the principle of sustainability. As such, its
projects are always implemented in coordination with a local partner community
organisation, based in the area of implementation. By providing
capacity-building as well as financial support, Seeds accompanies the projects
until they reach complete autonomy.

Seeds-NGO is
divided between a team based in Europe and a field team based in Uganda. Both
teams are composed of energetic and committed individuals working on a
voluntary basis. However, the field team is coordinated by a national
professional Projects Coordinator. He/She oversights and is responsible for the
management, planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation in the field.
