Project Report | Jun 21, 2019
In Honor of EarthDay

By Shana Greene | Executive Director/Village Volunteers

Dear Donor,

Planting moringa trees may not heal our suffering planet but it's something we can do in support of the environment and in the case of moringa, combat malnutrition. The nature of a moringa tree project is that they continue to grow and produce leaves and pods that have great nutritional benefits. 

While moringa has not worked in Transmara and in some areas in the Rift Valley, it does work along the lake and in the hotter regions of Kenya. It's a  drought tolerant plant that does need consistent heat and in some regions, the evenings are too cool for it to thrive. We understand its habits and have been very successful in the best of conditions.

In honor of Earthday, our goal is to plant more trees and to provide the powdered moringa to preschools in areas of extreme poverty with widespread malnutrition.  The results with small amounts of powdered moringa for a preschool child are dramatic. It's important to catch malnutrition at this time to ensure the child's growth and development. We also are providing powdered moringa for prenatal and postnatal care. Moringa is very helpful for lactating mothers. 

We thank you for your support in the past and always happy to share a report on trees and their benefits. 

 

Happy EarthDay

Shana
