MORINGA 

Moringa is considered to be the most nutrient rich plant on earth. Containing more than 90 nutrients and 46 antioxidants, these vivid green leaves are nature’s super-power food.

The Trust's Moringa Project has a vision to make the benefits of this remarkable plant freely available to all needy families in Nicaragua and beyond. We have moringa plantations in several locations within Nicaragua, and as seedlings become sufficiently mature, they are given to local families, with clear instructions on their cultivation, harvesting and use.

The Trust's pioneering research work into the health giving properties of moringa, and our education programme, is being carried out in conjunction with the University of Nicaragua Agricultural Faculty in Managua, themselves leaders in this field.
