At Strong Harvest, we care deeply about people’s holistic wellbeing and work to empower individuals, families, and communities to provide the basics of life for themselves instead of depending on unreliable external sources.

Our Peer Educator training program enhances food security, improves health outcomes, and increases economic viability while nurturing the environment.

We train small groups of community members to be the local experts in basic nutrition and how to grow and use the moringa tree. Then, these Peer Educators work directly with their communities to educate the local people. Our “training trainers” approach is very effective at spreading this life-changing knowledge as most community members hear about moringa from someone known, trusted, and of their own culture.

In Tanzania (TZ), our Field Representative Raymond regularly trains adult students at Babati Bible School as Peer Educators. These individuals are studying to become community leaders. Last year, one of these Peer Educators, Christina, taught a group of 27 women in Kokomay Upendo all about moringa. Raymond joined Christina a few months later for a follow-up training at which they taught the women to make moringa products for additional income (pictured above).

In Malawi, our Field Partner Moshi trained 10 Peer Educators at the end of 2023. Each of these Peer Educators has helped to spread the knowledge of moringa. Some have introduced moringa to communities for the first time, many have shared with individual families in surrounding villages, and some have even started moringa nurseries.

Along with Pastor Moshi, these Peer Educators have distributed thousands of moringa saplings to families in the area and are transforming the lives of their neighbors!
