Project Launch: 12-28-18
Extreme poverty is pervasive in the rural community of Maganga. The relationship between poverty and gender is straightforward with women suffering more poverty than men. Such suffering results in high rates of malnutrition among children under 5 years of age and intergenerational poverty. Low literacy levels among the women pose challenges in exploring other economic endeavors apart informal financial services like village savings and loans.
Moringa oliefera came as an accidental weapon to fight malnutrition and reduce poverty. The tree is drought-resistant and grows in abundance with little or no care. However, its nutritional and economic value are underexploited. This project seeks to empower local women village saving and loans groups to produce and locally process moringa to confront malnutrition and economic vulnerability.
