Media & Resources
Useful resources and information for use by journalists, fundraisers and anyone supporting our work.
If you are researching a piece about Madagascar which relates to SEED's work, we are happy to assist. Our staff have over 20 years experience working on the ground in Madagascar, as well as in-depth knowledge of our projects and the wider context. We have several staff members (Malagasy and International) available who have experience giving interviews and working with the media.
Before using any logos please seek permission of the Managing Director email@example.com which will be given once the context is deemed appropriate.
The SEED Madagascar logo must never be changed or adapted regardless of the format. This means do not redraw the logo, change the colours or distort its scale.
All of our latest videos can be accessed via our YouTube channel.
