THE MISSION

We are thankful to God for the wonderful gift of moringa, which he has planted under our noses.  He has given us the answer to the health and well being of our people, and He opened our eyes to see this marvellous blessing.  We are so encouraged by the transformations we are witnessing.

Our mission is to continue to grow and harvest moringa for the benefit of our whole community in Malawi.  May people see and marvel at what God has done!

BEFORE MORINGA

Before we started the moringa project, moringa was growing in the area, but the people did not know about its benefits.  They would eat it as relish, and also feed the leaves to pigs and goats.  To them it was a simple tree.

INTRODUCING MORINGA

When we first introduced moringa we faced a lot of resistance. Most of people around the community were not willing to sell me moringa since it seemed to be useless to them. People let you to take moringa leaves and seeds, but that was done by myself.  I was seen useless man when picking the moringa.  They thought I was a mad person. The community asked so many questions.  Why am busy with the moringa leaves?  Many seeds were thrown away.  No use was seen then.

YOUR MORINGA PROJECT

Thankfully, things are different now.  The whole of community is now aware of Moringa and its use. But the challenge is to have support.

People now can even use moringa in their tea, in porridge.  The people now can sell me moringa and the demand is now high from community asking me to support them. Now the challenge is opposite.  People will not allow you to take moringa from their gardens for free as I used to.  Now you have to pay them at least more money. While at first the people were not selling and not even allowing to pick off for you. I was doing everything alone.  Now its different story.  I don't do pick it any more, but just buy from them and process the moringa.

RESULTS OF MORINGA

The impact is just great.  Living standards have improved with great impact.  It's easy for more women to buy soap, sugar, salt, clothes, food, and even paying school fees for their children. The money they are getting from their sales of moringa to me has changed the life of many to positive side. More families are happy now. I am like a solution to many of their problems through sales of moringa to me. It is helping elderly, women, children and many people around the community. God should keep blessing the buyers and keep his good work going like that. Also asking more and more buyers to get in.

FUTURE MORINGA

I wish I could have good moringa oil extract, that could simplify my work and make it easy and fast. I wish I could have my own milling machine for powder. Since the one we are using its not easy to process our products as we are only given specific time and days which is not good to the business. Drying machine is also another area of my concern if some well wishers could help.

The size of warehouses, the cost of storage is also small.  I want to find another because the one am having can only keep 7 ton.  The other keeps 2 ton only.

Also to have more buyers, and the investors who can support me to buy land and cultivate a big farm. So that it should support more customers. In my plans am putting the mentioned so that this year it should be a successful year. With God I believe it will work.
