SEED ACADEMY Developing the next generation of African leaders


WITH OVER 200M PEOPLE BETWEEN 15-24 AFRICA IS THE FUTURE OF THE WORLD In fact, in the communities SEED works — Senegal & The Gambia — 60% of the country is under 24. Yet too many of these young people are either not enrolled in school, or likely to drop out — 90% of youth in Sub-Saharan Africa who enroll in primary school will not reach university. Our challenge is to educate this generation so they can lead their countries. The SEED Academy is designed to gives students the confidence they need to dream, and the tools to succeed in life.


SEED ACADEMY SEED Academy is the first elite boarding school for high potential basketball student-athletes in Africa. Located in Thies, Senegal, up to 40 boys and girls, grades 6-12, receive full-scholarships to live, train, and pursue their goal of attending university. We provide an innovate combination of elite level athletic training, academic enrichment classes and leadership development programming to create an environment for our students to explore their full potential.
