Konso used moringa stenopetala for last 100 and 100 of years as day to day supplement food. This plant has been beneficial for Konso community for its high nutrient composition as the basis of their food and it is also beneficial in developed countries as supplement and healthy food in the organic markets.
Because of its abundance and enormous supply, excess moringa was thrown as trash and farm waste in Konso. The project was initiated to create a wider awareness and demand on moringa Stenopetala. The promotion of a wider production and consumption is based on sustainability of the entire production system. Moringa Stenopetala “Waka” consumers get the best quality leaf powder without alteration of the original properties while contributing to change Konso people’s livehood and improve their women and family economic wellbeing.
