SEED Development Group (SDG) has created the SEED Program, comprised of undertakings known as SEED Development Projects, where SEED is an acronym for Socio-Economic Empowerment through Democracy.
These projects exist to provide private non-profit community development organizations, educational institutions, public community and economic development agencies, and others that serve disadvantaged individuals and communities with specific tools that enable their constituents to become viable, self-sufficient citizens.
SDG’s primary property within SEED Development Projects is a comprehensive, holistic socio-economic community development program called Operation SEED. Operation SEED is designed to be implemented by a licensed community development agency (CDA) and an accredited institution of higher learning.
However, to establish the system, the CDA and LEI, jointly with SDG, plan to introduce a pilot Operation SEED project. Called First STEP, where STEP is an acronym for Socio-economic Training and Employment project.
First STEP will replicate selected program elements, thus demonstrating the viability of a full Operation SEED in a specially chosen local community, wherever poverty reduction through private business activity and gainful employment is required.
First STEP Project Details
First STEP has three basic operations. Executed in two interdependent phases over 35 months; they are:
Thus, by providing 125 permanent jobs within a specially selected, target neighborhood, the feasibility of a full, race- and region-neutral Operation SEED will be demonstrated.
