During spring 2010 the junior graphic designers in Technologies and Processes collaborated with NGO
Impala Development Services (Swaziland) to create a name, identity, and packaging for Moringa Powder to
be sold in Swaziland and South Africa. The moringa tree is fast growing and drought resistant and has the
added value that its leaves are protein-rich. Thus, the powder—which can be added to all types of food—
provides a rich and low-cost source of protein for malnourished children and is especially beneficial to those
with HIV AIDS. Swaziland has a high rate of child malnutrition, due in part because they have the highest
per capita HIV AIDS rate in Africa. Students worked in groups of 4–5 to develop 3 proposals.
