We want to be able to offer Miracle Moringa to children at Tilinanu, Mkunkdu school and its surrounding communities, as well as the hospital we plan to build in 2016. To educate the communities to its health benefits and cultivation allowing them to continue to grow and crop Moringa themselves. To do this through a potential nursery at the school and on the hospital grounds for use of the hospital and Tilinanu. To sell seedlings to members of the community to care for themselves. With an aim to produce excess to sell locally in hospitals and markets and to the UK market. Providing income, moringa education and availability eventually nationally.
Sustainability is key. We believe every programme started should be of benefit to the people and the environment and be left in the hands of those people to grow, without reliance on financial aid. Offering mentoring and business development to help the programme be the best it can be. To fund the project after start up costs we should aim for the plants to be self perpetuating. Eventually we aim market surplus Moringa in Malawi and the UK.
Education will be a key part in the programme, both educating the community on its benefits and how to grow their own plants. We plan to tackle nutrition in schools starting with Mkunkhu. As the diet consists of over 90% maize with little nutrition over 47% of children have stunted growth! We will include this in with our teach a teach programme will be reaching out to hundreds of teachers in teacher training college. We can include valuable information in these programmes. We can also offer such talks and murals to a captive audience in the hospital waiting area, and wider community.
