Ventree Innovations partners with Africa on "Moringa for Kids" nutrition distribution campaign in Ugandan schools
June 30th 2022 – TheNewswire - Priceless Farms (PF) has been donating Moringa Leaf Powder as a supplement to local village schools to boost the nutritional intake for students in their meal programs. The initiative called; “Moringa for Kids” (M4K), has significantly improved both the physical and cognitive health of the children. In an effort to now expand the program PF studied the feasibility of expanding the program to more schools, orphanages and vulnerable populations.
This year M4K will be significantly expanded with the generous support from a benefactor and a partnering agreement with Doctor’s Choice® an East African Nutritional Medical company focused on African solutions to African problems.
Malnutrition is a root cause of many illnesses affecting the elderly, children and adults. Doctor’s Choice products are made from natural ingredients and their formulas are based on decades of research. Their products have been approved by the UN Global Market Place.
Ventree Innovations and their White Nile Basin, farm in Uganda (Priceless Farms) has been supplying 100% pure Moringa (Oleifera) leaf powder to Doctor’s Choice® as a boosting agent to their nutritional products for over four years.
This Back-to-School campaign for the M4Kids program will also be supported by local media and East African hip-hop music celebrity "Navio”
The new moringa formulation for kids is a children's chewable which provides all the essential nutrients from 3-11 yrs. and is again fortified with Priceless Moringa, which contains 2x the protein of yogurt, 4x the vitamin A of carrots, 3x the potassium of bananas,
7x the vitamin C of oranges, and 4 times the calcium of milk.
The M4Kids program runs throughout the year so that all the children benefit from the powerful benefits of moringa both physically and cognitively. Though the program has grown incrementally over the past few years our goal is to ultimately reach every mother and child in East Africa in a few years with a self-sustaining program.
The CEO of Doctor’s Choice®, Brian Holmes, said, “The words “partnership” and “quality” are thrown about quite liberally, but I can honestly say that these two are built into the relationship DNA between our two companies. Moringa is available around the world, from numerous sources, but Doctor’s Choice, demands such a high quality and consistency in its product, that we have selected on building our partnership with Priceless Farms and Ventree Innovations, there is nothing like it on earth.
Aaron Elton, the founder, and Chief Steward said, “For seven years, the "Living Labs - Foundational Farm" concept has built a significant body of research showing us that land reclamation and commercial profitability can go hand-in-hand. And the partnership with
Doctor’s Choice® proves this. By overlaying excellence in commercial, plant & people stewardship, Ventree can provide a model for rural and potentially distressed communities anywhere around the World. By combining best-of-class strategies and inventing our own Intellectual property, we will build a set of teaching guides to allow the "Living Labs" proven methods to be commercialized and exported anywhere in the world, like a franchise model.”
