Malnutrition and poverty are two huge global problems which also severely affect the rural North of Ghana, where we live. In some district, poverty rates reach up to 80% and 1 in 4 children living in the rural North is stunted due to chronic malnutrition. We want to make a difference by introducing smallholder farmers to Moringa Olifeira as a new cash crop. We provide all inputs and they grow Moringa around their farms as an extra crop, keeping risks for farmers very low. We buy the seeds to locally produce Moringa oil for export. The leaves are very nutritious and have a proven track record to treat and prevent malnutrition. Leaves are left for own consumption and for the local market. Growing 100 trees can generate an additional USD 1800,- of annual EXTRA income per smallholder farmer. In addition at least 50% of our profit is reinvested in our farmers’ communities in the areas of health, education and stimulation of other social enterprises.
