In this project, we are building two self-sustaining Moringa processing plants at Maanzoni and Ngangani primary schools in Kenya. The plants will use existing composting facilities at the schools to provide a circular source of production and; therefore, income for the school and parents employed to manage the processing facilities.
Funds will be used to fence plots for Moringa farming, construct drying sheds, provide training on Moringa processing, purchase gardening equipment and build drip irrigation systems at the schools.
Once the plants are fully operational, they will allow large numbers of students to participate in watering and monitoring the trees. As the trees mature, the schools will hire parents to work with the students to harvest the crop. They will also process the leaves in preparation for sale.
