Resilience Training

Our Resilience Training has been piloted over five years, with five intakes of students, graduating 100 youth per year.

We track the changes with students as a result of the course and also the impact they have in the world – in terms of changed behavior and the work they do in the green economy. 

The programs blends personal development support with technical permaculture training with low-cost resilience techniques, and equips individuals with hard and soft skills that promote greater levels of self-knowledge and behaviour change. 

The results are higher levels of personal resilience and wellbeing.

We welcome your application to become part of the solution and look forward to meeting you.

Alumni Ignite

SEED believes in long-term relationships with our graduates and all graduates are welcomed into the alumni network which shares information and opportunities.

The following workshops are facilitated to grow the capacity of SEED alumni...

  • “The course transformed my life. Before the course I had no idea where I was going in life. I had no idea that I could be in full control of my emotions.”

  • “SEEDS APT and Resilience Course had an unexpectedly profound experience on my life. It bought about change and growth in several aspects that had become stagnant from my business and income opportunities to my personal life. It motivated me to interact with my community and to build stronger relationships. I feel more hopeful and capable. I believe that I have purpose and value and something positive to contribute to my community.”

  • “This course has broadened my perspective and approach to life. I am equipped with valuable skills and knowledge that can benefit me and my children’s children.”

  • “This course has made me into an asset to the green economy. I got a job after the course, through the Job Shadow.”

  • “I am now growing my own vegetables and medicine and cooking outside using a rocket stove. I started a water system and a food system and implemented it in my community.”

  • I am more sensitive to my emotions and other people’s feelings and my relationships have more meaning. I am now a calm person and I can talk about my feelings or something I don’t like without getting angry.”
