Planting Trees for Earth Day!

By Shana Greene | Executive Director

Children of the Kipsongo Slums Feeding program
Children of the Kipsongo Slums Feeding program

Dear Donor and Supporter,

A tree planted anywhere helps everyone! We are convinced of that statement but the moringa tree is very special.  Besides the tree providing oxygen and shade, moringa has rightfully earned the name of "miracle" tree.Containing more than 90 nutrients and 46 types of antioxidants, the Moringa tree project provides a social enterprise that combats malnutrition. 

By planting moringa trees with the Kar Geno for Hope women, they powder the leaves and are provided to children who are malnourished. Malnutriton is chronic so we try to catch the children in preschool feeding programs.

For Earthday, we have partnered with the wonderful Kipsongo Project who make beautiful necklaces made by the women who live in the some of the worst slums in Kenya. The sale of the necklace pays the women, plants ten trees and the children of the Kipsongo slums will receive the nutritional powerhouse to grow and thrive to nourish a healthy brain and body.  To check the necklaces out go to our Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/VillageVolunteers?ref=hl

Volunteer with the Kar Geno Women's group to teach work with their social enterprise programs and learn about moringa from the cultivation to powdering and distributing moringa to children's feeding programs. The programs where we have moringa projects have all seen benefits of health and well being.  As a person who has contributed, we thank you and hope you will continue to help us spread this wonderful program so other communities.

Thank you,
