SEEDS is a pamphlet series developed to provide information about innovative and practical program ideas to address the economic roles and needs of low-income women. The pamphlets are designed as a means to share information and to spark new initiatives based on positive experiences from projects that are working to help women generate livelihoods and to improve their economic status. The projects described in this series have been selected because they have served not only to strengthen women’s productive roles but also to integrate women into various sectors of social and economic development. All projects documented in the SEEDS series involve women in decisionmaking, organize women locally, and address broader policy issues that affect the economic roles of women. This series was published by the Population Council from 1980 through 2006.
