Who we are

SEED Madagascar (Sustainable Environment, Education & Development in Madagascar) is an award-winning British registered charity (number 1079121) founded in 2000.
Operating in the south-east of Madagascar, we manage a wide range of sustainable development and conservation projects within the town of Fort Dauphin, as well as with numerous rural communities across the Anosy region. Alongside this, we aim to raise global awareness of Madagascar’s unique needs and build constructive partnerships to aid development. We can proudly state that 92% of all donations go directly to support our charitable aims and we constantly work to ensure that our administrative costs are kept as low as possible.
Our Vision

Communities and ecosystems thriving across Madagascar.
Our Mission

To enhance the capacity of individuals, communities, organisations and government in fulfilling sustainable environment, education and development goals in southeast Madagascar.

Our approach

SEED Madagascar is dedicated to providing locally developed initiatives based on the expressed needs of our partner communities. Our approach is based on partnership, co-management and skill-sharing by individuals, communities and local organisations. The programmes that result from this approach will lead to lasting change, alleviating poverty and supporting environmental conservation for some of the world’s most vulnerable people in threatened and irreplaceable environments.


SEED Madagascar has a number of unique and challenging volunteer placements in Madagascar. Whether your passion is sustainable community development or vital conservation work, we can offer you an unforgettable experience.
Whichever programme you choose you will be benefiting from SEED Madagascar’s extensive experience in Madagascar with each scheme led by an award-winning team of project coordinators. No particular skills are required to volunteer short-term with us and training is given locally, but if you do have particular experience in areas relevant to your programme, all the better!
Volunteering with us could help you choose a new direction in life or develop a career path you may already be on. It might be both a personal highlight and a practical stepping stone in a gap year or, for anyone at any time, a great way to go abroad for much more than just a holiday.
