    The SEED Initiative (Supporting Entrepreneurs for Sustainable Development) has called for submissions to its 2008 Awards. According to SEED, the award program is designed to support locally-led, innovative, entrepreneurial partnerships in developing countries, which have the potential to make real improvements in poverty eradication and environmental sustainability. Five winners of the award will receive support services, valued at $25,000, to assist with scaling up a new and promising program. One of last year’s winners was the Tiwai Island Health and Fitness Center in Sierra Leone, a health facility created through the partnership of a traditional healers’ association, an academic research institute, and local communities.
