Problem Statement

Pakistan, as a developing nation with 57% of its population under the age of 25 years, is a land of immense opportunity and potential. Unfortunately, due to public and private sector mismanagement since the country’s founding, Pakistan does not offer adequate educational opportunities for its young population. Today this is our biggest challenge.

About Us

Founded in 2012, SEED (Social Education Environmental Development) Pakistan is a non-profit organization, created to improve the lives of ordinary people by helping with the challenges the nation faces today. It is our core objective to work for the common man in our country, to uplift and elevate their standard of living.

SEED aims to be a platform for empowering Pakistani youth by providing means to education and vocational training. We will also engage with communities to provide Safe Drinking Water to underprivileged areas and to promote the importance of education. Ultimately, SEED Pakistan aims to create develop human resources for the benefit of Pakistani society as a whole.

SEED Pakistan is composed of like-minded individuals who wish to contribute to society. Developed as a Trust and registered with the Sub-Registrar of Government of Sindh, it is overseen by a Board of Governors responsible for development of strategies and management of its policies through an executive team.

Our Initiatives

SEED Pakistan aims to carry out its mission through three distinct but interrelated arms of operation. These arms are known as SEED EDU, SEED TECH, and SEED CARE. Each arm has a specific focus and a dedicated team working towards achieving our goals.

SEED EDU focuses on addressing problems of primary and secondary education. The main strategy employed is to legally adopt under-performing, under-staffed, under-resourced government schools which are usually in very poor physical condition. These schools then are renovated to provide a safe, clean, and welcoming environment conducive to learning for students. In the next stage staffing, education materials, as well as teaching methods and practices are all improved to make a major positive impact of on children’s learning. Students are never charged fees for the services SEED Pakistan provides.

SEED TECH focuses on providing technical education and vocational training to youths from underprivileged backgrounds. This aim is achieved by running training courses in a variety of fields or trades. Trades are selected based on multiple criteria including interest among applicants, market demand, and employment prospects among many others. Qualified instructors are engaged to deliver relevant knowledge and training to the students according to a rigorously developed curriculum. Fees are charged, however, any student who faces financial difficulty can apply for financial assistance through SEED Pakistan’s Zakat fund. Currently 100% of SEED TECH students are receiving 100% financial assistance.

SEED CARE focuses on providing safe and clean drinking water to students as well as to members of underprivileged communities who do not have access to water. We intend to realize this aim by installing heavy duty Reverse Osmosis water filtration plants in selected areas. Residents of those areas will then be required to sign up for a set volume of water for their consumption on a daily basis.
