We can inform everybody that we now have extended our managment team in Tanzania. She will do research on how to use Moringa products for curement of illnesses and diseases. She also is helping with setting up GEPAT throughout Tanzania. We now have have established our first Farmers Association in the province Kagera, the Karagwe region. The 500 farmers have now elected in a democratic way their leader.

We are now organizing, throughout Tanzania, but mainly the Morogoro region, farmers whom are growing Moringa on their own. Most do not have the right channels and/or contacts to offset their product. They will be enrolled in another Farmers Association and will receive all the help and support: to offset their products, to give Fair Trade prices, make a fist for their own rights.

Best wishes for the New Year for all reading this blog.
