VISION

 

We believe that all youth have the right to a quality education, access to elite sports programs, and the leadership tools to make big dreams come true.

 

WHY SEED?

With 64% of the population in Senegal under the age of 24, we have the opportunity to educate and empower a new generation of socially conscious leaders.  

According to UNESCO
66% of youth aged 15-24 do not finish primary school and find themselves without proper job qualifications.


78% percent of youth aged 15-19 drop out before completing high school.


Only 39% percent of women are literate compared to 62% of men.

OVERVIEW

Our programs are designed to increase school retention and graduation rates, while providing underserved youth new educational and leadership development experiences.  We seek to create impact on multiple levels: local, community and country.

  • Local:  Our primary demographic are students, grades K-12, and our programs are designed to increase school retention and graduation rates, while providing underserved youth new educational and leadership development experiences.
  • Community:  Our programs position our young people to be leaders within their communities.  We provide opportunities for our students to plan and host community give-back events (i.e. trash recycling awareness, basketball clinics, computer programming, etc.).  We also engage our student's parents and partner schools throughout the year to educate them on our SEED model that combines athletics and education.
  • Country:  Ultimately, we are preparing our young people to be their country's future leaders.  We believe that the countries we serve must be developed from within, and our programs give students the confidence they need to dream big, and the tools they need to make them come true.

    FOUNDER'S

    STORY

    In 1998, as a graduate student from Senegal and studying in the United States, Amadou Gallo Fall founded SEED Project (Sports for Education and Economic Development).  

    Fall was inspired by his own journey as a student-athlete when he was discovered by a member of the Peace Corps in the 1980s that eventually led to a basketball scholarship in the United States.  After graduating from the University of the District of Columbia, Fall worked for the Senegalese Basketball Federation, mentoring players and providing opportunities for student-athletes to further their education through basketball.  Fall then joined the Dallas Mavericks (NBA) and served as the Director of Player Personnel and Vice President of International Affairs while founding and overseeing SEED Project.

    Fall is currently Chairman of the SEED Project Board of Directors and Vice President of Development for NBA Africa in Johannesburg, South Africa where he continues to impact the lives of thousands of African youth.
