The author received more information yesterday following the blog posted about small scale development projects in and around the Pakati area. This was about the planting of the crop of Moringa plants from Vari Marez of Vatonatsa Foundation, along with some more photos…

This was produced by Heather Chimoga Orphancare, another charity organization in Murewa Ward 1 where VaTonatsa team and Mapanga staff went for training on how to grow Moringa.

In the picture above is Varaidzo Mayenzanise the Founding Director at VaTonatsa and Mr Chris Ediyeti the Head of Projects at Heather Chimoga Orphancare showing a 2 meter tall Moringa plant ready for harvesting.

This project is backed and supported by Hans Hafnugel of Kolibrierhos Initiative, who is a friend to Vatonatsa Foundation, based in Germany. There is more to come soon on other projects by the Foundation.
