Supporting non-profits working with moringa to reduce malnutrition
July 2014 Partner Campaign:
Help Farmers in Kenya Grow and Sell Moringa
By purchasing Kuli Kuli Moringa Products
Purchased of 2500 serving goal.Contribute!
How this works
For every serving of moringa purchased through this page, 15% of proceeds go directly to our partner organization to fund this campaign.
The Drylands Natural Resources Center (DNRC) enables subsistence farmers in the drylands of Kenya to plant drought-resistant trees. These trees improve farmers’ soils, diets, and crop yields, and offer the most marginalized communities in Africa a way to restore their land and secure their economic future.
The DNRC provides farmers with agroforestry inputs, classroom and field training, and long-term credit and commercial support, so they have all the tools they need to better manage their natural resources.
Since 2009, we have planted over 100,000 trees of different varieties, which has generated a sustainable source of firewood and supplemental nutrition from fruits, nuts, and leaves for over 2,000 people.
Additionally, our farmers reap the benefits of improved soil quality, more shade, and higher crop yields.
This year, they will begin sustainably harvesting their forests for green charcoal, timber, and other high-value wood products, which we estimate will increase their annual income by 50-150%.
The DNRC’s new focus on Moringa
Working with Kuli Kuli, we aim to plant 2,500 more Moringa trees, significantly increase the amount of Moringa our farmers consume, and begin selling processed Moringa powder through a DNRC co-op.
Of all the trees we plant, Moringa oleifera holds the most potential to address nutritional deficiencies and improve health outcomes. Moringa can also be processed and sold in local and export markets, as small farmers provide moringa to local families and companies like Kuli Kuli.
Why Kuli Kuli?
We are proud and excited to partner with Kuli Kuli! We share their belief that small businesses can help end malnutrition and poverty in Africa, and that Moringa needs to be widely grown and made available to consumers everywhere. We look forward to when Kuli Kuli bars are made with Moringa grown by farmers trained by the DNRC!
How our partnership with Kuli Kuli works
Beginning July 1, 2014, 15% of all purchases made through the DNRC MPP campaign page will be donated to the DNRC. If we are able to sell 2,500 servings of moringa in this manner, this would provide the DNRC with $1,000 to invest directly in Moringa planting, training, and co-op marketing programs.
