Moringa Project for Throwback Thursday
In 2010, students 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.
