Over the last few months the SEED Secretariat has attended all the award ceremonies and conducted workshops for each of the 2009 SEED Gold Winners:


  • Bangladesh Shidhulai: Solar conversion of traditional kerosene hurricane lamps
  • Colombia - Oro Verde: Facilitating Market Access for Artisan Miners
  • Niger - ALMODO: Recycling waste into goods ranging from building materials to energy substitutes
  • South Africa - Natural Justice: Biocultural Protocols: Community Approaches to Access and Benefit Sharing
  • Zimbabwe - KAITE: Bridge to the world, organic essential oils

The visits carry the purpose of profiling the SEED winners in their country through high-level award ceremonies, while also connecting them to influential organisations, institutions and foundations who can serve as partners and provide missing resources. The SEED country visits conclude with a specifically tailored training on management, finance, partnerships and other issues relating to scaling up social and environmental enterprises.

SEED wishes to particularly thank:

  • H.E. Mr. Stephen Evans (British High Commissioner to Bangladesh)
  • Deputy Minister Derek Hanekom (Deputy Minister of Science and Technology in South Africa)
