We firmly believe that one of the facets of a quality education is a stable home life.
The household income for a Seeds family is between $20 and $50 per month. As the adage goes, “Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime.” We believe growth requires going beyond just giving aid, so we work with Adamian parents and students to reach success.
We’re providing literacy classes and partnering with community development programs to provide the skills and training required to get a job or even start a business.
As a matter of fact, we have been offering entrepreneurship courses at the Take-Root Center since the fall of 2011. These are focused on developing the skills needed to revive the community and support its youth: starting businesses, maximizing profits and generating jobs.
We partner with microfinance institutions to give Seeds’ families access to credit. Micro-loans will help start or expand businesses, acting as a vehicle to generate income and improve the lives of each family involved.
