Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Education, Philanthropy, Private Independent Foundations

Mission: The PaperSeed Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening educational opportunities for children and young people in underserved and resource-lacking communities around the world.

Target demographics: children and young people

Direct beneficiaries per year: 184,000 children and young people

Geographic areas served: China, Guatemala, India, Kenya, Morocco, Nicaragua, Peru, The Philippines, and the United States

Programs: We envision a world where all children have the opportunity to obtain a quality education, and believe that local leaders know best how to improve their own communities. PaperSeed seeks to create lasting impact, well after the organization has ceased to be directly involved, by granting seed money to community-based organizations with leaders who have demonstrated an ability to run sustainable, long-lasting initiatives. PaperSeed is grateful to CellMark, who underwrites all operating and administrative expenses for the foundation, thus allowing 100 percent of donations to directly benefit innovative leaders, entrepreneurs, and projects that strengthen education. The foundation operates on a global scale, and has the unique opportunity of working together with CellMark, business partners of CellMark, and community-based organizations to bridge resource gaps and enhance children’s lives.

Since I work at CellMark, a partner to PaperSeed Foundation, I have had the previledge to do some volontary work for PaperSeed a couple of times. This has given me a deeper insight of what PaperSeed actually does. I’m so impressed of the whole organization and all the great people who really work their hardest to make a difference for children in need.

Paperseed allowed me to join an activity in an orphanage in the suburb of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. We brought furniture and books to equip a new library for this place. It was not just a matter of charity, but Paperseed provided the experience to meet the children and work together with them and the people Managing this place. We assembled furniture, unpacked the boxes with books and put them to the shelfs, hade lunch together, etc ... A day and an experience that I will never forget!

Paperseed does amazing work to improve educational opportunities both locally and around the world. Locally, I have been fortunate to see first hand how these projects have impacted so many kids in a positive way.
For projects around the world, they have shined a light on so many obstacles for kids, especially young girls. They find experienced groups in those regions and fund sustainable projects to alleviate these obstacles.

I work for the company that supports PaperSeed, and I have to say that they are very easy to work with, communication flows perfectly and me and my team feels that the efforts we give to the organization is really paying off. For me its very important that communication flows good in order to show our participation internally and externally, PaperSeed does a great job in that.
