Eco-Health and Wellness Programs
Moringa Tree Campaign, Nigeria and Water Filters, Haiti
ERI helps local communities to develop health associations and provide educational projects that address health and wellness. Water, sanitation, nutrition and waste management are the important issues that we address in developing a strategic plan for sustainable development.
Our Programs have been located in Nigeria, Haiti, DRC, Senegal and the Ivory Coast
We have provided numerous programs that address water, medical aid, cultivation of economic medical enterprises, development of health associates and combating malnutrition. Our partnerships with Safe Water Today, Kwara State Government, Haiti Water Initiative, and others have given us the opportunity to help local communities with the best practices in health and wellness and to ensure that there is a holistic strategic plan in place to make it a successful program.
GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
In 2011, we developed the Moringa tree campaign for Nigeria, offering a sustainable approach to combat malnutrition in Nigeria. The moringa tree is highly nutritious, drought-resistant, fast growing, and is naturally found in Nigeria. The Moringa tree has been dubbed the “miracle tree” and “tree of life” because of the exceptional nutritional properties found in its small leaves.
This program was created to prepare a group of government and health workers, midwives, allopathic healers, educators, and women’s groups to disseminate information on the benefits of Moringa to the community; how to cultivate Moringa and process Moringa leaves and incorporate it into recipes; promote education by creating informational booklets, and facilitating seminars, workshops, and radio talks regarding the benefits of Moringa and how to cultivate it; and create health gardens for Moringa trees at local health clinics.
