Based in Kenya, Edom sources moringa oleifera (a plant that contains vitamins/minerals to eliminate micronutrient deficiencies) from local farmers. Edom fortifies staple flours, manufactures nutritious food products, and sells them at affordable retail prices for people living on $1-3 a day. Edom reaches nearly 3 million malnourished children a month.
Impact on Illiteracy
Malnutrition is a debilitating issue in Sub-Saharan Africa and contributes to the vicious circle of poverty-disease-illiteracy. At least 40% of children in rural and suburban areas struggle to attend school because of insufficient or nonexistent meals. Edom helps nourish millions of children back to health, drastically increasing school attendance and performance.
