Mission

The Whispering Seed is a village based Home for Children and Sustainable Living and Learning Centre working in Myanmar and Thailand since 2004. We are a US registered 501 C3, tax-exempt charitable organization striving to bridge the traditions of sustainability and holistic education through innovative programs, trainings and design, drawing on the richness of local wisdom and traditional cultures along with renewed, socially appropriate models.

With a pioneering spirit, Whispering Seed strives to support and build partnerships and collaborations between local groups within Myanmar and South and Southeast Asia, as well as with the international community. By supporting the diversity of cultures and richness of traditional wisdom within Myanmar along with the integration of new models for learning and sustainable development we are searching for creative solutions to the variety of challenges which Myanmar will face throughout the next critical years of development.

WS is focused on five critical areas of development. With a holistic and integrated approach we aim to support the growth and development of a new society which is representative of the rich diversity of peoples and cultures of Myanmar.

The five areas of focus are:

1. Children & Youth
2. Holistic Education
3. Pioneers in Sustainability
4. Mindfulness, Health & Well-being
5. Vocational Skills

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Home for Children

Our Children's Home aims to alleviate the suffering of orphaned and abused Burmese children in vulnerable situations in Myanmar and Thailand by providing organic food, clothing and a loving and supportive environment in which children can freely explore the world and gain the confidence to become life long learners.

For 10 years we have ran a home for Burmese children in Thailand. In 2013 we have moved the project into Burma (Myanmar) and are continuing to provide care for the children.

We also run a Community Living and Learning Centre, in which we offer trainings and workshops in the following areas: holistic child-rearing, democratic and holistic models of learning, cross-cultural youth empowerment trainings, natural healing techniques, preserving traditional crafts (dance, music, spinning and weaving), documentary film making and sustainable models of living, including Permaculture, natural house building and organic farming.
