Our Story
Who are we?

The Seed and Knowledge Initiative (SKI) is a dynamic partnership of diverse southern African organisations committed to securing food sovereignty in the region. We work with smallholder farmers to become more seed, food and nutritionally secure through farmer-led seed systems, improved crop diversity, and the revival of local knowledge systems. 

Theory of Change

Our Theory of Change is based on our understanding of how enduring social transformation happens through an intricate and cyclical process of individual, community, and social change. It is also a response to our context, which requires a long term and fundamental paradigm shift.
