Give a seed. Grow a community. Empower Africa!
We're raising $20k to help rural communities in Zambia grow moringa crops so they can earn money and improve their nutrition.
Moringa is a superfood and regarded as the most nutritious plant on earth, it can help eliminate malnutrition in developing countries and LOTS of health-conscious people and sports enthusiasts in the First World also want to get their hands on some because it has loads of health benefits!
Moringa leaves can be consumed fresh, or dried in the shade and crushed into a powder which can then be mixed into food. It's super nutritious and really good for babies and young children too!
The funds we raise will help buy seeds and provide training to our partner communities (including a fabulous and hardworking group of women from Kachingwe Village and members of the Lusaka Provincial Women's Development Association), so they can plant organic moringa crops and earn an income for their harvests AND provide their families with better nutrition.
Have a look at the infographic above for the lowdown on the amount of income a community can earn from $10 worth of moringa seed.
This extra income earned from moringa leaf harvests can help a small under-resourced community improve their school and clinic buildings, hire extra teachers, buy things like water pumps, solar panels, irrigation for their crops, vegetable seeds, farm equipment, perhaps a computer for the community centre or even a community truck!
