Jazmin is working with a farmer in India with his Moringa production.  They came to our Moringa Demonstration Farm and saw how we produce premium quality Moringa.  He has been able to implement some of our techniques and has improved the quality of his production.  He was particularly interested in creating a Moringa Healing Circle for the employees break area.  She hopes to visit his farm next year to see firsthand all of his procedures.  We are interested in the soil quality and how he can make further improvements.

Matt and Adrian participated in our July 2015 course to prepare them for their work with Moringa in Kenya.  Here is a great video showcasing their mission.

Creating a large-scale water filtration system using Moringa Oleifera to provide clean drinking water and education to communities in Kimana, Kenya.

“One Moringa tree produces enough seeds to provide clean drinking water for a family of four.”

Takes out 90-99% of harmful bacteria as well as decrease levels of arsenic, fluoride, and other contaminants”

The first study in the public domain measuring the efficacy of Moringa Oleifera to reduce the prevalence of water-related illnesses.”

By involving local community leaders and carrying out studies to measure the efficacy of our Moringa-based water purifcation device, Everwaters is providing a framework for sustainable development and expansion to multiple locations.

After creating a sustainable model of providing clean water using locally available resources, we will expand into others areas like Haiti, Ghana, India, and Latin America.
