ChildFund has worked with the community in Emali, through local partners, with funds from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade and supporters, to deliver the Agriculture Dairy and Economic Development (ADED) Project project over the past four years. The project has created around 5,000 employment opportunities in the area.
Prior to participating in ChildFund's Agriculture, Dairy and Economic Development (ADED) project in Kenya, mother of six Josephine did not see rearing dairy cows as a business opportunity. Like many Maasai mothers in Emali, all she wanted was a cow to produce milk for her children.
ChildFund New Zealand has worked with communities in Emali, Kenya for over four years to successfully grow, harvest and sell the superfood Moringa, aka the “Miracle Tree”. Now, on the back of ChildFund supported business training, a local collective Emuka has taken Moringa to the next level by processing it into a range of market-ready products.
