The Moringa Trees are Growing!

Hello all,

Thank you all for your past donations. We are happy to report that the Moringa Trees are growing and the Environmental Youth Action Corps (EYAC) in the villages continues to plant more seeds to keep up with the demand.

Zepanaiah Ajode, our trainer, is working with the youth as well as schools and women's groups on the cultivation, benefits, and uses of moringa trees. They are all learning how to maintain moringa tree nurseries, powder the leaves for a nutritional supplement for the children in the feeding programs, and how to make oil from the seeds.

We will continue to report as our trees mature and continue to benefit communities in a myriad of ways. We love this project and hope you will continue to support the Moringa Tree Project.

Follow us on Facebook or check out our website.

Best wishes,

Shana Greene - shana@villagevolunteers.org
