Seed Effect is a Christ-centered economic development organization. Their mission is to plant the seeds that overcome poverty by providing access to economic empowerment, education, and spiritual discipleship in marginalized communities around the world. Together, with the support of their generous partners, they are challenging the status quo and the belief that refugees and the materially poor aren’t capable and are in need of a hand out. Seed Effect believes and has seen that with the right tools, these groups can and want to provide for their families with dignity. After working in South Sudan for seven years, Seed Effect is currently serving over 10,000 South Sudanese refugees and Ugandan nationals through their Christ-centered, savings-led microfinance program in northern Uganda.
