This week, Philémon takes us into the story of rice in Madagascar, how it came to be the main staple food, and why it is so important.
Coronavirus / COVID-19
SEED Madagascar will always act responsibly to protect the community of Fort Dauphin, and the people throughout Madagascar that we work with and employ. As of October 2020, we are continuing to carry out our programmes, but we are constantly monitoring the situation and following official advice.
We're working with local partners to prevent and control the spread of Coronavirus in Madagascar.
How you can help
Our financial resources are extremely limited, but we are taking action to increase community preparedness.
Buy a mask in the UK for £5, fund 5 masks in Madagascar. Protect yourself and people here!

What makes us different?
We're a small organisation focused on just one region of one country.
We don't have fancy offices or high-paid staff, we spend more money on our projects.
We work with local people to find sustainable solutions.
