One tree, a life time of opportunity...
In Techiman, Ghana, entrepreneurial spirit is alive. Hundreds of farmers aspire to create sustainable futures for themselves and their families through small scale agriculture.
However, today, many farmers are unable to fulfil their entrepreneurial ambitions, as they face financial barriers to buying land, have limited access to information, and no clear route to market. Together, we can help change this.
The moringa tree can provide a solution. Turned into superfood supplements sold across the world, this tree grows from seed to harvest within four months and will live for 30 years, offering a life-time of income for Ghanian farmers. Growing Moringa trees enables them and their families to grow their income to build homes, gain education, and receive access to healthcare.
Cultivate, with your support, provides vital ingredients, unlocking long-lasting opportunities for Ghanian farmers.
With a $30 donation to The Buy A Moringa Tree Project, we will enable farmers to access land, moringa seeds and the equipment to grow it, in addition to offering training, workshops and a route to market. Each seed will begin to offer a financial return to the farmer in six months.
Our target is to reach 8000 trees donated by February 2020, which will enable 40 farmers to establish and grow their own Moringa business.
At full capacity, each farmer on a half-acre will be able to harvest around $4750 per year in revenue. Over ten years, each dollar donated will give $6 back to the individual farmer. This extra income can cover the yearly costs of food, school fees, housing rent and utility bills for a family of four.
What you get
All donors will receive a gift to remember their investment. The top donor and one winning donor will receive the opportunity to visit the Moringa farm in Techiman when we reach our goal of 8000 trees.
