Nébéday is a Senegalese environmental protection association that works for the participative, sustainable management and greater exploitation of the country’s natural resources. Setting up professional sectors, developing income-generating activities for women, as well as educating children and raising their awareness of environmental protection issues and reforestation, are at the heart of its day-to-day work. In particular, Nébéday is working to promote the Moringa plant, considered to be the “tree of life” and renowned for its high nutritional value thanks to its iron and protein content. The association operates in the Fatick region, located in the Sine-Saloum delta, where there are regular droughts and salinisation of the soil, and where almost 20% of children under the age of 5 are malnourished.
The project : continuing the introduction of Moringa powder in Senegalese schools, with the aim of improving children’s nutrition.
After support in 2019 and 2020, this year brings to a close this project to improve the nutrition of schoolchildren thanks to Moringa powder, and is therefore the final pilot phase before the program is rolled out to a larger number of schools in the same region.
