IMPACT OF COVID - 2020 was a challenging year for SEED and our partners. For many of our partner groups, the end of the pandemic is far away. Right now, it is rising in Togo, Kenya, and India and increasing alarmingly in Jordan. For SEED, many of our events were canceled due to the pandemic, and we lost $50,000 in expected revenue.
OUR GRATITUDES - Since we were able to pivot quickly — and because you generously donated for SEED Capital projects — we were able to send 50% more than normal to our partner groups! What a blessing to be able to do so, even in 2020.
LOOKING FORWARD - 2020 has taught us a lot, and we have identified three specific growth opportunities to help livelihood groups thrive. They are:
large custom orders (like tote bags for conferences & churches)
sourcing products for companies
SEED Capital projects launching community-based small business ministries
