Seed Effect is a Christ-centered economic development organization. Their mission is to plant the seeds that overcome poverty by providing access to economic empowerment, education, and spiritual discipleship in marginalized communities around the world.
Together, with the support of their generous partners, they are challenging the status quo and the belief that refugees and the materially poor aren’t capable and are in need of a hand out. Seed Effect believes and has seen that with the right tools, these groups can and want to provide for their families with dignity.
