GROWING MORINGA FOR: • POVERTY ALLEVIATION • FOOD SECURITY • COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT
“We envision to give all smallholder farmers in Ghana the opportunity to climb out of poverty through the cultivation of Moringa. We aim to be the biggest producer of locally made Moringa products in West Africa. Through using part of our profit for community development, we aim to make a lasting and sustainable impact on the entire community wherever we are active. It is our vision that Green Gold S.E. will inspire the formation of other economically viable social enterprises through leading by example."
LIFT 10.000+ SMALLHOLDER FARMER FAMILIES OUT OF POVERTY
Based on a typical 2 acre farm planting Moringa as a life-fence, the profit of selling seeds will give an annual return of app USD 1500,- once the tree is mature, based on USD 3,-/kg Moringa seed.
ERADICATE MALNUTRITION IN OUR COMMUNITIES
Integrated into our training activities, we will train our farmers and families on the benefits and uses of Moringa leaves in local dishes. The inclusion of Moringa in the diet combined with a better income can eradicate chronic malnutrition.
PLANT 1.5 MILLION TREES
Green Gold will plant at least 1.5 million Moringa trees in the next 10 years, reducing CO2 in the atmosphere.
Green Gold produces 100% organically on the plantation in order not to harm the environment. In addition, we aim to change the agricultural practices of 5.000 smallholder farmers to 100% organic farming.
CREATE JOBS ESPECIALLY FOR YOUTH AND WOMEN
We create at least 110 direct fair waged jobs in a rural area where secured employment is a scarcity. We give a preference to disadvantaged groups including women and unemployed youth.
PART OF PROFITS GO TO GREEN GOLD FOUNDATION FOR COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT
Green Gold foundation will reinvest this money into our communities in the areas of: health (focus on sanitation and nutrition) education economic development
