In a nutshell…
The idea for The Borneo Post SEEDS began about a year ago, first as an idea as a weekly print-publication, and then more recently as a website.
Our mission is to give young adults a voice and a face in the news, and the chance to tell us what's relevant to them whether it's through this site's forums, email, our Facebook and twitter pages.

By Danielle Sendou Ringgit email@example.com @danitbpseeds The night was full of laughter as the guests attending Barefoot Mercy’s (BFM) benefit dinner at Borneo Convention Center Kuching (BCCK) were entertained by comedians Rizal Van Geyzel, Kavin Jay and Jonathan Atherton while enjoying a feast of local indigenous cuisine on October 1st.

How to jumpstart social enterprise in..
By Patricia Hului email@example.com @pattbpseeds A few months ago, The Borneo Post SEEDS caught up with Abby Hosanna from The Backyard Tour Guide which aimed to empower youths with jobs in eco-tourism in the Padawan area. Last year at the Rainforest World Music Festival (RWMF) craft bazaar, we caught up with Kiew Boon Siew founder of Heart Treasures Sdn Bhd selling artwork by her ‘angels’; youths diagnosed with autism, development delay (slow learners), cerebral palsy, physical disabilities as well as orphans and single mothers.
