SEED Madagascar is an award-winning, holistic international development charity who envisages communities and ecosystems thriving across Madagascar. Our central mission is to enhance the capacity of individuals, communities, organisations and government in fulfilling sustainable environment, education and development goals in southeast Madagascar. The charity achieves this by working across four departments to respond to the most critical and express needs of the country: community health, education infrastructure, sustainable livelihoods, and environmental conservation. Our approach is based on partnership, co-management and skill-sharing with individuals, communities, local organisations, and governments. The programmes that result lead to lasting change, alleviating poverty and supporting environmental conservation for some of the world's most vulnerable people in threatened and irreplaceable environments, measurably contributing to the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.
SEED Madagascar is a registered UK charity (No. 1079121) and Malagasy Non-Governmental Organisation, established in 1994, working in southeast Madagascar on humanitarian, environmental, and development projects. It is SEED Madagascar's belief and experience that nature conservation is impossible to impose; rather it must be proved to be of benefit to the local community to be sustainable. SEED Madagascar works with communities among the Antanosy peoples around the last remaining stands of littoral forest in southeast Madagascar. The Antanosy are among the poorest people in Madagascar and live within a beautiful and ecologically diverse yet endangered environment. SEED Madagascar's projects surround four different areas; Sustainable Livelihoods, Health and Sanitation, Conservation, and Awareness.
