Context

The Moringa Oleifera is a tree that has grown in South Africa for over 500 years. It is known in the region for its beauty, its health benefits, but also for its resistance to drought. 

 

Supported Project

L’OCCITANE South Africa and the L’OCCITANE Foundation are supporting a tree distribution program, which aims to give 900 trees to schools and community gardens. Planting Moringa has both environmental, as it reduces carbon emissions, and economic benefits, as it creates jobs, thereby improving the lives of beneficiaries.

Moringa leaves are transformed into a powder, which is then sold as a food supplement. The seeds, on the other hand, make it possible to produce a high quality oil, which makes the cultivation of Moringa an activity responding to strong economic and food issues in South Africa.
