SEEDS, on a mission to SAVE LIVES!
Aligning with the vision of reaching out to the most underprivileged communities who comprise the bottom 1% and are disproportionately impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic, SEEDS designed its Covid-19 second wave response. Our efforts are focused to Share The Burden on our healthcare system. As part of the initiative, we are establishing covid care centres with essential isolation services in several districts across India, running a mass vaccination drive especially focused on vaccine adoption in the rural areas and also running a 24×7 National helpline ‘Relief Frontline’ to provide verified leads on specific covid care services.

Subhash Chandra Bose Aapda Prabandhan Puraskar 2021
SEEDS has been awarded with the prestigious Subhash Chandra Bose Aapda Prabandhan Puraskar 2021 by the Government of India, to recognise and honour our contribution in the area of Disaster Management. SEEDS has worked on the frontlines towards making communities disaster-ready. The organisation has been actively engaging with the local leaders to build community resilience at large.

Paint. Shade. Insulate. Go Green!
With people spending more time indoors due to COVID-19 surge, the vulnerability to heat related illnesses will also increase due to the poor quality of built environment. To minimize this risk, we are reaching out to over 50,000 individuals living in informal, unregulated and dense urban settlements in East Delhi by providing a series of communication materials. These will not only highlight the risks but also give ideas of low-cost simple solutions that can be easily implemented. The #BeatTheHeat Champions contest aims to encourage participants to implement these solutions and share their stories of cooling their homes!

SEEDS Cyclone Yaas Response
SEEDS is reaching out to over 2,00,000 individuals that comprise of the most marginalised communities affected by the very severe cyclonic storm Cyclone Yaas that struck the coastal districts of Odisha and West Bengal on May 26th 2021. We are reaching out to address the water contamination issue in Balasore, Bhadarak districts of Odisha and East Medinipur, 24 South Paraganas, including the Sundarbans area of West Bengal. The cyclone led the seawater gushing into the houses of families settled near low-lying areas forcing them to seek safe shelters amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. After assisting with the rescue operations, with support from our local partners and volunteers we are ensuring to also reach out to families with dry ration, safe drinking water support, covid care essentials and other crucial home utility items while maintaining covid safety protocols.

“We enable the most vulnerable to build a safer future”


Building resilient communities through a holistic and inclusive approach

Humanitarian Response

When disasters strike, we reach out to those who go unseen. Each response is unique and tailored to ground realities. It’s about saving lives and minimising the impact of secondary disasters.

Building Back Better

Every rebuilding effort is an effort to leave behind new capacity and skills, not just safer buildings. We focus on homes, schools and community infrastructure; and their surrounding ecosystems.

Reducing Future Risk

Disasters are morphing and new risks are emerging. How do you reduce the impact of the next big emergency (or multiple smaller ones)? We work with communities to plan, build response capacity, mitigate daily risks, and adapt to climate change impacts.


Our work over the years has reached a broad cross-section of people. We’ve sparked hope through innovative buildings, nature-based solutions, new skills and children’s smiles across India and Nepal. Some of our outreach includes:

Lives Touched

Emergencies Responded

School Children Trained

Shelters Built

Schools Built, Repaired & Restored


Affected people at the centre. A commitment to quality and core humanitarian standards.
Sustainability at every step. Long-term thinking. Local action with global influence.
These are the values that drive all of our work.

We hold ourselves accountable to our supporters, partners and the communities that we serve.
