Who we are
“Self Empowerment & Educational Development Society” (SEEDS) saw light with the approval from Registry of Societies Malaysia to begin its mission to fulfil its vision and objectives on 8th September 2016.
The formation of the Self Empowerment & Educational Development Society (SEEDS) is based on the principles of its founder, Jeevithan P Ganasan, a well-known socialist/activist in Malaysia. . He has been known for the many social activities and his fight for justice. Having contributed much, this platform serves to continue the works of MCEO (which had to be deregistered due to some issues caused by irresponsible parties) to benefit the community in more ways than one. A motto of Jeevithan always lived by, ‘Teach one to fish instead of giving the fish’ and he believes in empowering and educating individuals instead of spoon feeding them. SEEDS aims to achieve this by providing a platform for the community to grow, learn and develop themselves. It believes that only through this, will the less fortunate escape the poverty trap; that has so many of our community struggling to get out of. It also follows suit in its founder’s ethics to walk the talk and not just make promises without the means to see it through. It further aims to make a realistic difference in the community; further promising to ensure it is done. With holistic plans to instil confidence and build capabilities, SEEDS intends to uplift marginalised communities to greater heights. By doing so, the organisation hopes to develop competent Malaysians who will be capable of standing on their own feet and have the mind-set to excel instead of depending on charitable hand-outs or the goodwill of others to survive.
It is also a society created to empower people in entrepreneurship and strengthen the community by enlightening them on the importance of education; and also a new platform for the Malaysian Community Development Organisation (MCEO).
SEEDS Mission: Educating and instilling self-awareness to create a self sufficient Society
