Season Global sources, supplies and designs sustainable solutions for the world’s most pressing development challenges.
Today, these challenges are more complex than ever and we exist to help solve them. We do this by bringing deep expertise, original thinking and quality products to long-lasting partnerships with the world’s foremost development specialists.
As the world changes, new development challenges will inevitably arise for each generation. With this in mind, we aim to create a world in which local actors are equipped with the necessary resources to solve these issues for themselves in a sustainable manner, thereby unlocking their full potential. At Season Global, we believe that partnerships are the key to achieving this vision.
Season Global’s mission – and overall approach to international development – is best explained through our “Develop. Impact. Empower.” philosophy.
We develop solutions to help solve complex international development problems. Sometimes, these solutions involve sourcing and supplying products for a variety of sectors. On other occasions, they require us to design bespoke projects and provide consultancy services. Regardless of the challenge, we always rise to the occasion for our partners and the communities we serve.
Our products and services are diverse but united around a common purpose: to positively impact the world. From the high-quality seeds we supply to Africa’s farmers to the logistical support we provide during humanitarian crises, a Season Global solution is a sustainable solution – with a net positive impact that we actively measure year-on-year.
At Season Global, we recognise that international development is only sustainable if it transitions communities from dependency to self-sufficiency. In other words, if it empowers communities to become motors for their own growth. This ethic guides our strategy and we only engage in projects that pass this litmus test.
Our three subsidiaries – Season Development, Season Relief and Season Services– translate this mission across their respective areas of expertise, ensuring consistency across all group operations.
Season Global’s operations are grounded in a set of common values, which act as our promise to the partners and communities we serve. Far from a declaration of intent, these values actively guide our conduct, choice of partners and projects, ensuring that our work always reflects the highest ethical standards.
As an idea, Season Global can be traced back to the Somali civil war, which forcibly displaced company CEO Bishar Dhere and his family in the early 1990s.
Forced to live in poverty, Bishar nevertheless grew up determined to forge a meaningful career and use the experience of war as a force for good. The seeds of Season Global were planted at a young age.
As a young economic migrant, Bishar studied entrepreneurship in Nairobi’s bustling internet cafes and slowly distilled his ideas into a simple but effective business plan:
A company dedicated to international development.
A company whose activities will help unlock Africa’s potential and bring prosperity to impoverished communities worldwide.
Its products and services will be sustainable, its partnerships enduring.
This will be Season Global.
Today, this is Season Global – a company with 28 employees based in 6 locations across 3 continents. A partner to many of the world’s leading international development and humanitarian specialists, we look forward to continuing our story together for many years to come.
