SCHOOL FOR EXPERIENTIAL & ENTREPRENEURIAL DEVELOPMENT

  

 


Millions of people are living in dire poverty in the Philippines and do not have access to quality education. Only 50% of high school students go to college while only 14% graduate, most from diploma mills that do not equip them with the education and skills needed to compete in the job market. Meanwhile, the best and the brightest students leave the countryside to pursue employment in urban cities and abroad due to lack of opportunity.

Launched last August 11, 2014SEED Philippines provides an education-based solution to rural development. It is the first school for social entrepreneurship for the poor which serve as a model for rural development through education and hands-on learning mentored by an international team of social entrepreneurs and innovators. SEED prepares students to create social enterprises that will develop rural areas through rural job and wealth creation. It serves as a pilot that will be replicated to provide a quality education to thousands in communities across the Philippines.


The School for Experiential and Entrepreneurial Development (SEED Philippines) aims to raise the next generation of agri-entrepreneurs. Its focus on countryside development attempts to address poverty where it is most acute, reach the people who are most neglected, and grab the opportunities that remain untapped. In the last three years, it has since opened its doors to over 100 scholars from all across the Philippines, providing a holistic approach to learning through classroom instruction, hands-on learning, and enterprise development. During the two-year program, students take a variety of courses that focus on character development, enterprise management, communications, business math, and agriculture. Graduates then become partners or apprentices of existing social enterprises through the Gap Year Program where they continue a hands-on approach to learning and the application of real-world skills.

I come from a family of farmers. My parents work whole day on the field but it's never enough to send me to college. I want to become a farmer and an entrepreneur.

Farming feeds the world.
