At Seed Programs International,

Ending hunger, building equitable food systems, and doing right by the planet are just a few of the things we know are possible.

We empower small-holder farmers, communities, and individuals to make a more food-secure world.

OUR MISSION

is to increase global access to environmentally-appropriate vegetable seed, resources, and education so that local communities build and maintain resilient and secure food systems, livelihoods and ecosystems.

OUR VISION

is an equitable world whereby communities have access to diverse, quality vegetable seed and the knowledge, tools and resources needed to grow nutritious food that builds climate resilient communities, food systems, and ecosystems.

WE BELIEVE

that by providing people around the world with good vegetable seed and appropriate, eco-driven training to grow food, we can accomplish the following:

  • Improve Nutrition

  • Improve nutrition by having people grow vegetables rich in micronutrients that are otherwise missing from diets. These vitamins and minerals are essential for prenatal health, safe childbirth, child development, productivity and supporting a long and healthy life.

  • Grow Sustainable Livelihooods

  • Grow sustainable livelihoods by diversifying and increasing crop production so that excess harvest as well as novel crop harvests can be sold in local markets. This extra income breaks the cycle of poverty by allowing farmers to pay for kids’ school fees, medicine, clothing, safe shelter, and other needs.

  • Assist in Crisis Recovery

  • Assist in crisis recovery by stabilizing seed supply chains in crisis areas.

  • Support Climate Resilience

  • Support community and climate resilience by identifying and utilizing climate-smart agricultural techniques that bolster soil fertility, diversify crop production, and increase sustainable productivity.

  • Build Capacity

  • Build capacity of local organizations, communities and individual farmers by increasing skill sets to help people reduce their dependency on aid. Our goal is to work ourselves out of a job, one community at a time.
