Seeds of africa foundation

Seeds for Africa is a charity based at the University of Kent in Canterbury, created to help African families and communities to build a self-sufficient and sustainable future through the provision of seeds, agricultural equipment and training. In 2015, Seeds for Africa became a part of Child.org in order to take their work forward, beginning an exciting new chapter for the charity.

This page tells you a little about the background of Seeds for Africa, where they came from and why their journey will continue as a part of Child.org. To find out more about Child.org and who we are now, please visit our who we are page.

Origins

Seeds for Africa was formed in 1998 following the Lambeth Conference, hosted by the University of Kent.

Albert Bullock and Ron Taylor, (pictured right at one of our projects), both worked for Rutherford College at the university. They met the Bishop of Sudan at the conference and decided to found the charity to help alleviate poverty and hunger.

Successes

As Seeds for Africa, the charity set up over 800 garden projects across 25 African countries, encouraging sustainable vegetable gardening by providing indigenous vegetable seeds, agricultural equipment and technical expertise.

Seeds for Africa believe in sustainable development. Their innovative method of support for primary schools launches Breakfast Clubs and Food Gardens which provide vital meals for school children and are designed to be self-sufficient within three years of funding.
