SEEDS Foundation (registered charity number: 1153528) was originally founded in 1994, however we did not become a registered charity until May 2012. SEEDS Foundation was originally founded to establish the Capital Public School in Azad Kashmir, Pakistan in the city of Muzaffarabad. The school now provides education from nursery through to secondary school and is catered to educating children from deprived socio-economic backgrounds where educational empowerment is less developed in third world countries. Due to this, the school strives to equip the students with the knowledge and skills to enable them to better themselves in society and lead better lives. SEEDS Foundation was also established with the aim of helping those who had been devastated or bereaved by the earthquake that hit Muzaffarabad in 2005, which tragically claimed the lives of over 80,000 people, leaving many children homeless and orphaned.
To empower people from disadvantaged communities, through education and training.
At SEEDS Foundation, we educate the disadvantaged people within the UK and even the world. Education provided by SEEDS is giving people a better hope for a better future. The skills and knowledge our beneficiaries gain from our projects is invaluable, as not only are they enhancing their job prospects, but also: the local community, local businesses, the economy, and their overall standard of living.
At SEEDS we believe that no-one - young or old - should be a victim of circumstance.
Where Are We Now
SEEDS has come a long way since its founding in 1994, and it now mainly operates from the UK. SEEDS also operates a branch in Azad Kashmir, Pakistan (now known as 'SIES') - and the progress we have made in Pakistan can be seen by the growing percentage in literacy, education, and skilled proffessions in Muzaffarabad. In future these outcomes are likely to positively affect Muzaffarabad's economy - ending the extreme poverty the people of Muzaffarabad face today.
