Who we are

The SEAD Project and the SEADWest Project aim to contribute to achieving sustainable food security in Rwanda. The projects are designed to support Rwandan universities and TVET institutions to improve their education and training programmes; research and community services in agricultural production; value chain management as well as land and water management. SEAD and SEADWest are institutional development cooperation programmes aimed at strengthening educational capacities in partner countries of Dutch Development Cooperation through strengthening post-secondary education and training.
