One third of New Zealanders are under 25 – and that includes over 300,000 high school students. Globally, there are 1.8 billion people aged between 10 and 24. So you matter.
There’s no way to end extreme poverty without us young people stepping up.
Poverty is multidimensional
Extreme poverty cuts across people’s lives many ways. So, we need to use more than one tool to put it in the past – and SEED provides opportunities for just that.
SEED is your chance, as a high school student, to get involved in ending poverty. We don’t just fundraise – we advocate for change, and we give young people the chance to come up with new ideas for new solutions.
No need to wait. SEED is our high school programme. We run a whole range of different events, designed to give you a chance to learn, create, and act. You’ll both learn about poverty – and build key skills, like public speaking, presentation, and fundraising.
We're happy to come speak to your class, assembly, or club - and we've got inspiring stories to share about projects from Kalimpong to Kiribati.
We try to recruit both one student ambassador and one teacher contact in each school. If that sounds like you, drop us a line!
Meet our team
A team of P3 Foundation volunteers run SEED. They came to P3 in all kinds of ways - some attended our university World Changers events, others started out as SEED facilitators, and some even first got involved as high school students themselves.
