S.E.E.D.S., Inc. is a small, international, African–centered, non-governmental organization (NGO) co-founded in the early ’90s. by Jacqueline Wright, Chairperson, and Akinlabi Mackall (pictured below).
S.E.E.D.S. is an acronym for Service, Education, Economic Development and Science.

We began as an ad hoc summer project, when a group of African ancestry educators mobilized to share modest quantities of books and school supplies with villagers in rural Ghana. Although now self–sustaining, and considered by some to be a catalyst for social change, S.E.E.D.S. has retained its commitment to ‘people–to–people’ empowerment work.

The programs that currently operate through S.E.E.D.S. are its Start–A–Library Program, Crafts For Fair Exchange (CFFE) and its Pan African Empowerment Communities Network "Inreach" (PACE) . These “S.E.E.D.S.” programs will emphasize: (1) Service For Social & Political Change by average folks; (2) Education &Literacy in local Black communities and in Africa; (3) Economic Justice & Development for Empowerment through "alternative" socio–economic development models (CFFE, Powernomics, African Economic Empowerment (AEF) Fund, etc); and (4) Science for Sustainability through collaborations addressing our global African health & nutrition crises, as well as Pan African technology–transfer and resource sharing strategies. The Start–A–Library Program and CFFE are both much, much more than “feel good” projects. Each offers very easy opportunity for large numbers of Black folks to find common ground upon which to mobilize. In each we also address a glaring “immediate need” (literacy and economic empowerment respectively) while specifically heightening Pan African consciousness.
