Face of Disasters 2020
Current realities mean change is the only constant! Hazard risks, hotspots and broader vulnerabilities are all evolving. What will this mean for the humanitarian sector? Read More

Featured Cause

Usually, states in the north-east region of India get flooded in the monsoon season every year but this time, the state of Assam has experienced the worst flooding in the last decade affecting over 3.6 million people and claiming 60 lives as on July 16, 2020. Millions of families are battling with the intense flood situation coupled with the challenges of ongoing coronavirus pandemic and require urgent humanitarian aid.

The affected communities are facing this threat over and above the ongoing COVID crisis, and are in desperate need for support.

With extensive damage to houses, affected families need to start rebuilding from day one, in order to have a roof above their heads. This is critical given the continued rains in these areas. Immediate support for repairing homes and getting basic home utilities are thus the next priorities that we are helping impacted families with.

SEEDS is reaching out to 100,000 affected people in Assam with their immediate needs for water, health and hygiene. Join hands with SEEDS as we reach out to the worst affected families, sowing the seeds of hope and renewal in their lives.

It’s not easy to mount humanitarian response programmes in the midst of lockdown. Our response has been truly localised in action! Partners and local communities in different corners of India are helping reach the most vulnerable – even through boats if needed!

SEEDS stands with Assam!

“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 the following.
