Why Invest in SEEDS?
“SEEDS has opened wide the doors of various opportunities that, if I had not gone through SEEDS, would have remained locked and out of my sight.”
“My proudest accomplishment is taking the first step on the path towards finding myself. Going beyond the borders of my comfort zone, coming out of the turtle shell I had hidden in for years as a child, I was able to go through the experiences that shaped the person I am today. These experiences were only made possible by the different educational environment I was placed in after graduating from SEEDS.”
“The best thing SEEDS taught me is the value of gratitude, which is acknowledging my fortunes and privileges, and giving credit and thanks where they are due. In turn, gratitude’s twin sister generosity allows me to give selflessly, be it through community service or daily random acts of kindness.”
