In March/April, 2012, I had the opportunity to work with and interview the agricultural social entrepreneurs in the sustainable farming model for Moringa Production in Africa. The social entrepreneurs at IRDI, a Zambian-based NGO which helps local communities reach the proverbial first rung of the economic ladder to sustainability through Moringa (superfood) production. Hailed as one of the most nutritious super foods in the world, Moringa production can aid in fighting malnutrition and other ailments in Africa while providing an economic windfall to rural communities.
IRDI spokesperson, Jacqui Wintle, introduced me to local schoolchildren, rural communities and farmers who were creating sustainability in their sphere of influence with Moringa farming. This is truly one sustainable agricultural model and product that can aid Africa now and in the future.
