About Us

Seda is a National Non-profit, Development Organization fully registered under the laws of the Republic of South Sudan, by the Relief and rehabilitation Commission (RRC) under Chapter 3, Section 10 of NGO Act, 2016 with Registration Number 1870, fully dedicated to improving the welfare of the people and the physical, social and economic environment in which they live with the primary goal of achieving of “social good,” by use of communication for Development (C4D), Research and Social Marketing Strategies.

We aim to look for the development of the rural poor, empower them towards their sustainability.

Founded in 2018 by a group of educated, dynamic and like-minded youth working in the development sector, who got together to establish the organization, for addressing the most urgent and pressing needs of the people of South Sudan. Due to this spirit, the organization was named Social and Educational Development Agency (SEDA), because we believe “Educational is not just about career development, but also about character development.”

Our staff include experts in health, education, nutrition, environment, economic development, civil society, gender, youth, research, technology, communication and social marketing – creating a unique mix of capabilities to address today’s interrelated development challenges.

What SEDA Does?

  • Influenced by the new development paradigm, which puts people before things, SEDA follows a participatory approach in every sphere of its work. The traditional knowledge of the rural poor is valued and respected and there is confidence that rural people are capable of self-reliant organization. On a practical level, the fundamental thrust of this approach is decentralization and empowerment.
  • For a community to be able to work for its own development and reduce its dependency, there is a need for full involvement at all stages of the development cycle. The participation of communities in identification, planning, management, implementation and evaluation of projects is a key factor in SEDA’s work. Internally, a participatory approach is adopted in management the affairs of SEDA.
  • Externally, SEDA roles as a “change agent” which helps to develop community management structures that are capable of managing their own development. This increases the ability of the community to demand accountability in all their affairs, from leaders and officials. It reinforces the community’s belief in the value of their own development choices and efforts. These community management structures are not parallel structures but are built upon traditional institutions, promoting equitable representation and participation.
  • Human resource development is an essential part of our development work. This means ensuring that the community is trained and skilled, as well as organized, to maximize the potential of the community to take hold of its own development.
  • SEDA strongly believes in maximizing its impact by transferring field experiences into knowledge to influence the development policies and practices of NGOs, donors and government agencies. This is important for working towards the long-term goal of eradicating poverty.
