SEED NATIONAL

The core value of SEED is to empower individuals and communities in order to create an independent and prosperous society. We give people a hand up, not a hand out. The way we do this is through projects offering education, equipping people with vocational skills, and providing information on matters such as health and legal. We encourage volunteering and delivery of services by the community, for the community.

SEED was founded in 2014 by a group of civil society activists from different backgrounds, each enthusiastic about activism and development. Today, SEED has six board members and total of 14 members.

VISION

SEED aspires to create an active civil society union in Tripoli and in Lebanon. We want to mobilise all members of society, from all backgrounds, to cooperate to create a cohesive response to the crisis we are witnessing in Lebanon.

BACKGROUND

SEED exists as a result of the refugee crisis, but does not work exclusively with refugees. Our cause is to support the people of Tripoli, which is under pressure following the sudden influx of refugees. With a population of almost half a million, Tripoli now hosts an estimated 150,000 Syrian refuges which translates to 1/3 of the overall population. It is therefore no surprise that services are stretched and resources are scarce. We aim to strengthen the local community in order to provide somewhere that all nationalities can live and work.
