The Seeds for Development Team is made up of 3 unpaid trustees in the UK - Founder Alison Hall MBE, Penny Peters and Sue Howland. In Uganda we have a paid project manager. We are supported by a team of unpaid volunteers in Uganda. We are able to pay the salaries of an additional 10 teachers and 5 cooks. Please click here to find out more about our team.
The first Seeds for Development project was in Mpigi in the Central Region of Uganda. We now focus our efforts on northern Uganda and work directly with six communities near Gulu and Kitgum. Our coffee project is also on the other side of the River Nile in West Nile Region. Please click here to find out more about where we work.
Seeds for Development started in 2007 when Alison Hall MBE learned about the plight of millions of people in Uganda who didn't have enough money to buy seeds to grow themselves out of poverty. Since then we have provided seeds to over 3,000 farmers and expanded our activities to include education, empowerment and community support. Please click here to find out more about our story.
