About Us

We focus on problems and timeframes that are difficult but tractable; tractable because we can see possibilities to transform them; and transformational in measurably improving people’s lives.

We map our path with thematic and geographic mission statements. We walk these paths by nimbly combining rigorous learning and flexible sourcing of external funds. We measure our performance by our impact on beneficiary communities and the way in which our services change the lives of individual women, men and children.

Our supporters include international organizations, national governments and private philanthropists. 


Our vision is for a world in which vulnerable people have more opportunities to advance themselves.


The purpose of our social enterprise is to work with vulnerable people to build a better future for them.

How big are you?

A small-medium enterprise that is growing fast. Because Seefar is still relatively young we are growing at a rapid pace, which means thenumber of us in terms of human resources changes almost constantly, but it is currently in the hundreds.

What’s the history behind Seefar?

Seefar was founded in April 2014 as a social enterprise by people who had reflected on how we could combine the best parts of a private sector focus on results with a social purpose dedicated to vulnerable people. We apply commercial strategies to social progress and we are not a profit-driven organization. We do not pay dividends to shareholders. We started with two people, and now have a team and network that is now more than 50 times larger to make this happen.
