Innovation
Describe your idea in fewer than 50 words.

Provision of 02 to 03 seedlings of Moringa Oleifira to each household of the rural communities. These would become mature and within (01) year the trees would support the eradication of the widespread Malnutrition among community members.

What makes your idea unique?

The Moringa Oleifera plant is the most inexpensive and credible alternative to not only providing good nutrition, but also the cure and prevention of a lot of diseases.
Nutritional analyses show that the leaves are very high in protein and contain all the essential amino acids, including two that are especially important for children’s diets. This is most uncommon in a plant food. Moringa leaves are well rewarded with essential vitamins and minerals. The whole plant is like a big apple of micro-nutrients standing and beckoning at humanity. Popularized growing and use of Moringa leaves and other parts of the plant can no doubt help prevent the scourge of malnutrition and diseases in Africa and the rest of the world.
Moringa is a fast-growing, drought-resistant tree that grows even in marginal soils, with very little care.
Indeed, it is a potential life-saver, only it should be promoted in parts of the world where people need it most – Latin America, Africa and Asia.
Scientific research has proved that Moringa leaves are a powerhouse of nutritional value. But unfortunately, this information has not reached the people who need it most – like the people of Sudan and other African countries.

What is your area of work? (Please check as many as apply.)

What impact have you had?

Sudanese nation have a good enough growing season to feed all themselves, yet so many go hungry. This could be changed through (Educational Efforts). The problem is reaching them.

Describe the primary problem(s) that your project is addressing.

Malnutrition among children is widespread. The rural areas of Sudan could be on the breadline today with 80 per cent of the population surviving on less than one dollar a day, but the scourge of poverty, in varying degrees, cuts across most of Sub-Saharan Africa.
Poverty in this case is multi-dimensional. It sucks in lack of income, deprivation in health, education, water and sanitation, vulnerability of families in regard to access to physical assets, the state of human capital, levels of income diversification, participation in the formal safety net and access to credit markets.
However, in whatever form poverty manifests itself, the trail of devastation has followed a similar pattern in most Sub-Saharan African countries – hunger resulting in death, displacement of people and economic stagnation.

Describe the steps that your organization is taking to make your project successful.

Availability of Visiual Aids and suitable transportation to cover the locations of Rough terrain areas.

Impact
What will it take for your project to be successful over the next three years? Success in Year 1:

The first year would be enough to provide 200,000 seedlings to 100,000 households, which will instantly provide them with nutritional food.

Success in Year 2:

The households of the mature 200,000 trees would be able to produce similar or even more trees from the cut branches and a local forest could be created to provide nutritional food.

Success in Year 3:

With the increased number of trees, the community members could enter into income-generating process as Apiculture, Ben-Oil and soap producers.

Do you have a business plan or strategic plan? (yes/no)

Yes, a business plan is available as an NGO.

What are the three most important actions needed to grow your initiative or organization? STEP 1:

Funderising Availability of Seeds.
Printing enough educational material.
Funds to provide Audiovisual aids.

What are the three most important actions needed to grow your initiative or organization? STEP 2:

Access of suitable transportation (4xwheel) means.

What are the three most important actions needed to grow your initiative or organization? STEP 3:

Monies to cover 01 year overheads (wages for instructors and labours).

Describe the expected results of these actions.

1. Targeted Communities would be reached and awareness would be passed to the community members.
2. Community members would be educated of the Necessity of growing a year round nutritional food provider.

What was the defining moment that led you to this innovation?

The current situation of food struggle and the reliance on foreign aid to the Sudan. The people have the means to support themselves.

Tell us about the social innovator behind this idea.

Well, I have read about the Moringa tree and met some international bodies, WB and IFAD (Sudan) whom supported the idea but they have their own restrictions to provide funds.

How did you first hear about Changemakers?

A dear friend in France: Eric Lemetais: eric.lehavre@wanadoo.fr

Sustainability
What would prevent your project from being a success?

To my own belief: nothing on Earth

Financing source
If yes, provide organization name.

NO

The Story
Does your organization have any non-monetary partnerships with government? (yes/no)

No

Please tell us more about how these partnerships are critical to the success of your innovation.

Monetary partnerships with NGOs is not accessable here in Sudan as each would work with its own donors.
The lack of donations towards such a project could be granted from CWS, but it wouldn't be a Substantial enough to cover more than provision of seeds.

How many people will your project serve annually?

Of course, more than 10,000.00 (it is a life saving) who can state that cost!

What is your organization's business classification?

Non-profit/NGO/citizen sector organization

What is the total number of employees and total number of volunteers at your organization?
