Seed Programs International

OUR MISSION is to provide good quality seed, expertise, and training materials to humanitarian organizations working around the world to alleviate hunger and poverty.
Seeds and Skills for Women to Grow Vegetables
 
We provide vegetable seeds and support so women can grow food! Female farmers produce more than half the developing world's food - yet own less than 2% of land and receive scant support such as seeds, tools, and knowledge. We join with women's gardening efforts in the most impoverished countries worldwide including Madagascar, Guatemala, and Liberia. By providing top-quality vegetable seeds and locally-driven support, seed programs give women a path to empowerment, income, and nutrition. project reportread updates from the field
After Ebola, Gardens Help Rebuild Lives
 
In a country where so many already lived on less than $2 a day, Ebola's truly crippling longer-term impact is on the whole population's ability to earn a livelihood and feed their families. The epidemic has caused missed planting and harvesting seasons, price spikes, and food shortages. Working with three in-country partners to reach those most isolated by poverty and disease, we are providing more than 25,000 packets of tested, appropriate vegetable seeds, along with support and training. project reportread updates from the field

Provide Seeds for Haitians to Grow 50 Tons of Food
 
Self-sufficiency in diet and income are key to a strong Haiti, but lack of quality seeds is a big limitation to growing food. Seed Programs International (SPI) will print 7,000 packets in Haitian Kreyol and fill them with top-quality seeds like carrot, pepper, melon, okra, and cabbage. These fresh foods can stave off malnutrition and be sold to boost income. Haitian partner AyitiKonseVet (AKV) provides agronomists to support growers. Your gift grows vegetables at 19 schools & 130 homes and farms project reportread updates from the field
Worms for Widows
 
Vegetable seeds provided by SPI are growing fresh organic vegetables for widows and families with no resources in great need of nutrition and income. Guatemalan Ixil Maya children suffer an 85% malnutrition rate. This funding provides start-up kits of worms and materials for Maya Ixil women farmers in Chajul, Guatemala, to create worm farms. The women will grow worms and produce compost tea for 30 vegetable gardens, reducing the need for fertilizer by 50%, and creating 8 microenterprises. project reportread updates from the field
Seeds for Syria
 
Violent armed conflict in Syria has caused millions of Syrians to flee to other parts of Syria and to neighboring countries, creating a humanitarian crisis in which food is a top priority. With our Partner Organization Karam Foundation, SPI is establishing vegetable gardening projects for internally displaced refugee to produce their own food. The project will ship a pallet, which is about 30 cartons, or in total 42,000 packets. This grows 150 tons of food or more = 1.5 million vegetable serving project reportread updates from the field
