Mission

We believe that everyone should have access to sustainable sources of good nutrition, clean water, and economic opportunities, while protecting and caring for the local and global environment. To make this a reality, we work in partnership with developing-world communities to provide attainable, sustainable, and generational solutions to the issues of malnutrition, unsafe drinking water, lack of economic opportunity, and land degradation. Our primary tool is the moringa tree. The solution really can be as simple as a tree!

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Peer Educator Training

We train local Peer Educators in basic nutrition and the cultivation and uses of Moringa so that they are equipped to train others in their community and beyond. Because Peer Educators are from the local community the impact is greatly increased as families hear about Moringa from people they know and trust.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Strong Harvest International fosters sustainable and generational development by building strong individuals, families, and communities. We enhance food security, improve health outcomes, and increase economic viability while nurturing the environment. Through grassroots, family-focused approaches, we break the cycle of poverty at its roots.

Strong Harvest empowers people to meet their own basic needs in ways that create dignity in the individual, that are attainable and sustainable at the family level, and that will be passed down from generation to generation, creating a better way of life.

Our primary program provides training for individuals, organizations, and communities in the cultivation and uses of the multi-faceted moringa tree. Strong Harvest trains and equips local people to become Peer Educators who then take the knowledge of moringa to their own communities and beyond.

Strong Harvest provides:
• Hands-on Peer Educator training programs tailored to meet the unique needs of the participants
• Training materials pertaining to: basic nutrition, moringa cultivation, and using moringa for good nutrition, clean water, and economic opportunities
• Project planning support
• Follow-up training and support
• Networking opportunities for Peer Educators
• Identification of market pathways for those who seek to develop moringa into a family or community business

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
