We believe the potential of the leaves of the Moringa Oleifera tree to effectively tackle malnutrition is unending.
We collaborate with small holder farmers, in the foothills of Darjeeling and the south of India, with whom we work to grow and harvest the produce of the Moringa Oleifera tree.
A single seed planted in every household that has limited or no access to basic nutrition, provides each of the families access to 2 times the Protein of Yogurt, 7 times the Vitamin C of Oranges, 3 times the Potassium of Bananas, 4 times the Vitamin A of Carrots and 4 times the Calcium of Milk on a gram-for-gram comparison with Moringa leaves*.
We have taken baby steps towards ensuring access to knowledge of the benefits of Moringa Oleifera within the local small holder farmer community, which we believe is key to spreading the word and realizing the potential of this tree.
