The statements below were written by several SEEDS alumni regarding their experience and their gratitude for what SEEDS has helped them to accomplish. As one of the alumni stated … “It is just the beginning … enough said!”
SEEDS helped me a lot to become the young man I am today. Being at SEEDS helped me not to confront most of the temptations that teenagers face at the age of 15 or 16 years old and I am really grateful about that.
Going to SEEDS for me was the best decision I ever made in my life. I just want to thank SEEDS for everything for making me the man I am right now basketball wise and education wise as well.
EVERYTHING that I am today is SEEDS ACADEMY… SEEDS gave me the biggest opportunity of my life next to being born and being able to use every single part of my body to do work … I learned to choose between the pain of hard work that leads to a big and positive accomplishment from the pain of failure and regrets… One thing I know more than anything, IT IS JUST THE BEGINNING… ENOUGH SAID!
SEEDS is not just a program but a family. I thank God for putting SEEDS in my life & thank SEEDS for giving me this amazing opportunity to succeed in life, help the academy & also help my family.
I can’t express my feeling about SEEDS because they took me from the bottom to the top of a deep hole in 3 years. They gave me the first step that helps me realize one of my goals. SEEDS is a foundation that everybody in the world should know by the great work they do helping the Senegaleses and all the African kids to realize their dream to have a good education and playing their favorite sport.
SEEDS is helping me a lot to achieve my goals. I'm so thankful to SEEDS. The best thing you can learn at SEEDS is how to become a better man, a good teammate, being respectful etc. And since I have been to the United States they are still looking out for me. We are so blessed compared to others kids. Living in the United States would be tougher if I didn't go to SEEDS because they prepared you to every situation you can face in life.
