Children are only children once, we cannot leave them stranded without an education. – Julia Gillard
SEED, Sustainable Education & Enterprise Development is a program developed by W-Holistic Business Solutions that provides holistic and inclusive solutions to helping existing schools that serve children from low-income families build lasting pathways to education quality. Using schools (serving children from low income households) as the centre of our implementation strategy, we work with them in ensuring we are able to address most obstacles that stand in their way of providing quality education. Our solution is a hand up, not a handout.
SEED is on the path to reach at least 10,000 schools with more than 1 million children by 2030 in several developing countries, starting with Nigeria.
We envision a world where all children no matter their background have access to quality education. Will you walk this journey with us?

The SEED Training has really been educative and rewarding…. I have gained a lot in reducing cost of running the school and boosting the avenue of increasing income. Also improving on record keeping (documentation). Thank you.
It is a wonderful training that will help anyone who wants to make impact in his/her world to move forward. Due to this training, I have already been making plans for a school business for rearing catfish to improve our income and teach the children. I am thinking of how to begin with the little cash in my hand… I thank God I am part of the participants.
I loved the aspect which teaches on how to set aside whatever you earn in a term. Also, how to collect school fees from parents like daily savings by opening an account in the school which enable them pay daily. I have also implemented the habit of saving before spending. With this, I was able to have some savings in my account at the end of the term.
This SEED programme has been a very wonderful one because most of the schools did not have “School Development Plans” but with the emergence of this SEED programme, we now know what to do. It has been a wonderful thing.
I have been attending this seminar from the beginning and it has been of great help. The previous lessons I have learnt through the second seminar, I learnt a lot on how to keep records of your cash payment, school fees.
